On the other side of the world, Joseph Flint, a naval officer wronged by his superiors, plots a bloody mutiny. Strikingly handsome, brilliant, but prey to sadistic tendencies, Flint is regarded as the most dangerous bandit on the high seas.
Together these gentlemen of fortune forge a deadly and unstoppable partnership, steering a course through treachery and betrayal while amassing vast treasure.
But the arrival of Selena, a beautiful runaway slave with a murderous past, and Flint's schemes to secure the pieces of gold for himself trigger a rivalry that will turn the best of friends into sworn enemies.
And so the legend of Treasure Island begins - an epic battle of wits and blades that unravels the mysteries of Robert Louis Stevenson's greatest work on the sweltering seas of the Caribbean.

What a surprise!
Would you consider the audio edition of Flint & Silver to be better than the print version?
Having only watched the movie version of Treasure Island, I didn't really know why I bought this audiobook but it was a real dilight from start to finish. It was a good story which seemed to follow (or preceed) what I remembered from the movie so it made me buy the original Treasure Island audiobook.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Long John Silver I remembered as a villian, but in this book he was not only a victim, but a genuine hero.
What does Tim Gregory bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
The reading was very good by Tim who seemed to be as much into the story as I was.
Who was the most memorable character of Flint & Silver and why?
The author advised that, although Treasure Island was a children's book, Flint and Silver (and the subsequent books) are aimed at adults.
Any additional comments?
I cant wait for the 2 sequels (but still prequels to Treasure Island?) to come out on audiobook. Bring It On!

This story was a wonderful blend of accurate seamanship and thrilling suspense, reminiscent of the Aubry-Maturin novels, but with more lively "pizzaz." The narrative tool of Treasure Island, with its cast of characters already known to us, only served to enrich the experience, made all the more rewarding because of the Author's rich development of those same characters. I highly recommend this, and eagerly anticipate Pieces of Eight
