Pirates, gold villains, beautiful women and The Caribbean, in 1665, combine to make a great high seas adventure and setting for the Pirate Latitudes and our hero – Captain Hunter. Captain Hunter is a privateer who believes that those people he calls friends or those who have favoured him see their friendship, or favour, returned with interest. Hunter gains permission from the colony’s governor to go and find logwood at surrounding islands, with the knowledge that there is a treasure laden Spanish galleon in a nearby harbour. The British cannot attack this galleon outright so they must formulate a plan which will allow them to attack the galleon, capture the treasure without breaking any alliance between the two countries. As with all good adventures achieving this is fraught with twists and turns culminating in the good guys standing trial for piracy.
