Based on the final voyage of the most successful captain in the history of piracy, The Requiem Shark is the tale of William Williams, a pampered young man forced into service aboard the ship of the dreaded Bartholomew Roberts - also known as Black Bart.  With a level of education that sets him apart from his illiterate shipmates, Williams becomes the biographer of the captain - and slowly grows to manhood in the violent world of piracy, struggling to retain his humanity while sailing the blood red seas.  A graphic, rousing literary debut, rich in historical detail, this novel will transport readers to a distant age when all a man needed was the wind at his back, the open seas, and the feel of cold, sharpened steel in his hands.
