Publisher's Summary

Captain Wilson Cole's latest exploit saved millions of lives but embarrassed his superiors. He is a man with a reputation for exceeding orders but getting results. Cole has found himself the victim of a media feeding frenzy, a political scapegoat despite years of dedicated military service. Faced with a court martial, he is rescued by the loyal crew of his ship, the Theodore Roosevelt. Now branded mutineers, the crew of the Teddy R. has quit the Republic, never to return.Seeking to find a new life for themselves, Cole and comrades remake the Teddy R. as a pirate ship and set sail for the lawless Inner Frontier. There, powerful warlords, cut-throat pirates, and struggling colonies compete for survival in a game where you rarely get a second chance to learn the rules. But military discipline is poor preparation for a life of pillaging and plundering, and Cole's principles limit his targets. Seeking an education on the nature of piracy, Cole hunts more knowledgeable players: the beautiful but deadly Valkyrie, the enigmatic alien fence David Copperfield, and the fearsome alien pirate known as the Hammerhead Shark.BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Mike Resnick.

It Gets Better

Book 2 is worth taking a chance on if you had read Book 1 and thought it was a slow start.
It was. But Pirate picks up the pace and adds some interesting characters. The Narrator, Jonathan Davis, does an excellent job of allowing your imagination to believe you are listening to the different voices of all these characters.Forget the "he said, she said" complaint of a previous review, you'll be too engrossed with the action.

If you didn't like Mutiny, don't buy this one.
That said,
If you did like the first one, the story continues and gets better. Good pace, never boring. It has fun and funny characters, yet always belivable. These three books would have made a very fast paced 25 hour book. They are good enough to seem very short at 8 hours each.
And so,.. I am running back to download book 3.

seventeenth century pays in space

Unmitigated rubbish! There is nothing here for anyone with the slightest interest on actual science fiction. he might as well have had the spaceships built of wood.
