Based on the true story of pirate Anne Bonny, this novel brings to life a trailblazing and feisty young woman.
Anne Bonny was 18 when she ran away from her violent husband, into the arms of pirate captain Calico Jack. Now, aboard Jack’s ship, she’s part of a ruthless crew bringing mayhem and murder to the Caribbean. But James Bonny is willing to pay to get his wife back. And pirate-hunter Captain Barnet is open to all offers. Devil’s Ballast is action-packed, nuanced, culturally relevant and sharp as a cutlass.
