Praise For Pirate Latitudes

“Pirates Latitudes has the loot: Gore, sex, action…. A lusty, rollicking 17th century adventure…. History as entertainment…. Crichton has done his homework.”
-Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today

“Unabashed fun.”
-Cameron Martin, New York Times

“Offers unexpected turns and plenty of yo ho ho’s.”
-Richard Eisenberg, People (3 out of 4 stars)

“It’s not an ironic pirate novel. It’s not a pirate novel with a secret gimmick. It’s simply an entertaining tale filled with crafty privateers, despicable villains, treasure hoards, double crosses and a sea monster. Go figure.”
-Michael Berry, San Francisco Chronicle

“The plot sucks you in like the giant kraken monster that nearly sinks our hero’s galleon.”
-Benjamin Svetsky, Entertainment Weekly
