kes another prize. At the point of a cutlass, Glasby and most of his shipmates are taken prisoner. When Roberts, who has recently lost his navigator, learns that Glasby is a master of the art and craft, Harry’s fate is sealed. The most ruthless pirate captain of the day makes it clear: “You will steer my ship or you will die!” As His Majesty’s Royal Navy declares war on piracy, Glasby, no longer on the side of the angels, is thrust into a life of bloody sea battles, plunder, and the precarious and dangerous fellowship of the pirate brotherhood. From the islands of the Caribbean to the disease infested coast of Africa, Glasby guides Roberts, the scourge of the Royal Navy, to countless victories and incalculable wealth. Glasby is haunted by guilt and wracked with worry for Constance Sacker, his fiancée and the woman carrying his child. Intelligent and resourceful, Glasby must escape and return to Boston. But how does a prisoner of pirates find his way home? Glasby’s Fortune is inspired by real events surrounding two historical figures, Harry Glasby and Bartholomew Roberts. Roberts is credited with more than 400 sea victories, making him the most successful and audacious pirate of The Golden Age of Piracy.
