The Pirate Hunter: The True Story of Captain Kidd
A literary treasure, The Pirate Hunter is a masterpiece of historical detective work, and a rare, authentic pirate story for grown-ups. Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer, fabulously rich, burying dozens of treasure chests up and down the eastern seaboard. But it turns out that most everyone, even many respected scholars, have the story all wrong. Captain William Kidd was no career cut-throat; he was a tough, successful New York sea captain who was hired to chase pirates. His three-year odyssey aboard the aptly named Adventure galley pitted him against arrogant Royal Navy commanders, jealous East India Company captains, storms, starvation, angry natives, and, above all, flesh-and-blood pirates. Superbly written and impeccably researched, The Pirate Hunter is one ripping good yarn.

Very well researched and engaging. If nothing else it will make the reader ever so thankful that our justice system has evolved to where it is, even if on feels it's still lacking. Read full review
Review: The Pirate Hunter: The True Story of Captain KiddUser Review - Bart Scott - Goodreads
I did like this book Although many times the author, while trying to keep its pros got bogged down in so much detail it was like reading a textbook. Still if you want a real look at the life of pirates on the sea, as well as the other side of the story of Capt. Kidd this is the book. Read full review
