Pirate Hunter by Tom Morrisey
As soon as I read the description for Pirate Hunter, I knew I wanted to read it. It just sounded like something a little different and very interesting. I was not disappointed. This book exceeded my expectations by miles, I loved it. I usually like to read chick lit, but I was ready to read something different and it's not everyday that a book about pirates comes out. I am so glad I read this book.
Pirate Hunter has two story lines that are woven together. The one story line tells the story of an 18th Century pirate ship. The other story is about a modern day marine archaeologist who is hunting treasures in the waters off of Key West. At first, I could not see what one story had to do with the other, but as the book went on I started to see it, and the end was simply superb.
Tom Morrisey has written an entertaining story with a lot of heart, wonderful characters, and adventure. I recommend this book for both men and women. It has a lot that is appealing for both. This story will stay with me for a long time and I will look forward to reading more books by this author. I just can't say enough good things about this book. Just read it, you will see what I mean. Enjoy!

Two stand-out heroes make this book a real treasure
Pirate Hunter by Tom Morrisey is a wonderfully written adventure story mixed with a little faith and a lot of history. Greg Rhode is just out of college and lucky to find a job working on Phil Rackham's ship salvage operation out of Key West. His investigation of a wreck brings up gemstones that have a fascinating history that only the reader will ever know. Bold Ted was captured as a slave and then rescued by pirate Captain Henry Thatch. He signs on as a member of the Regent crew, which puts his life in danger when the Spanish go gunning for Thatch and his compatriots who stole a valuable ruby from one of their ships. The two stories move along parallel lines through manhood, falling in love, and the discovery that treasure isn't found in gold and jewels but in forgiveness and family. Morrisey gives readers just enough information about diving shipwrecks to intrigue without overwhelming them with jargon. The romances are sweet, and the adventure captivating. The two heroes are what really make this book shine. I loved this book!
