The second in the rip-roaring adventure series of 'Treasure Island' prequels for fans of 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Once comrades-in-arms, now sworn enemies, Joseph Flint and Long John Silver have a score to settle. Marooned on a remote Caribbean island with his loyal crew and a fortune in buried treasure, Silver awaits the return of the man who left him there. In order to defeat Silver and claim the island back as his, Flint will need to raise an army -- no easy feat for the man most wanted by the Royal Navy. But with disease running rampant on the Island and the net closing on Flint, time is running out for both men. But who will survive -- and who will get the gold?
Praise for 'Flint & Silver': 'Flint & Silver contains the essential ingredients to attract a worldwide following' Western Morning News 'An epic tale of friendship and treason' The Sea 'Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn't get much better than this. If you loved Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island as a kid -- and who didn't? -- then you will absolutely love this not-for-kids prequel. John Drake writes beautifully, and you'll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O'Brian is totally justified' Nelson DeMille
