It's 1660 and the Golden Age of Piracy. Scarlett Browning, daughter of Smoker, a smuggling godfather, takes on the Caribbean in the stolen French Country ship she has renamed The Fox. Loyal to her men, an implacable enemy to the Spanish she is a ruthless, merciless Pirate Queen in the image of Anne Bonny, Ching Shih, Mary Read and Anne Dieu-le-Veut. Friends with Henry Morgan and Sir Christopher Mings, she sets out to gain a reputation as fierce as Morgan. A swashbuckling adventure of the high seas; betrayal, revenge, Mayan gold and Spanish treasure. As honest an account of piracy in the 17th century as I could make it so the violence is sometimes extreme and cruel.
