This long-awaited sixth installment of the best-selling series ?Capit'n Alatriste?, which follows the escapades of Captain Diego Alatriste, is seen through the eyes of a fellow privateer who served with Alatriste in the galleys of Naples. It is a story of skirmishes, privateers, boarded ships, killings and sackings. A time where Spain was revered, feared and hated in the easterly seas; where the devil had no color, no name and no flag, and where the only thing needed to summon hell on earth (or sea for that matter) was a Spaniard and his sword. A time where men went about their tasks without meddling in government, philosophical or theological affairs. A time where men were soldiers.Pérez-Reverte, Arturo is the author of 'Corsarios De Levante/ Privateers from the East ', published 2007 under ISBN 9789870406303 and ISBN 9870406300.
