Overview

From the blue waters of the Caribbean and the Florida Keys to the wind-swept wilds of the Outer Banks, Pirate Hunter combines the romantic popularity of a pirate tale with an inspirational story of modern-day treasure hunters.

Following a captured slave who's been freed by the sixteenth-century pirate who takes his ship, the novel weaves a rollicking tale of adventure. Paralleling this story in the present are the treasure hunters seeking the gold--and stories--of the past. Greg Rhode--a preacher's kid who has become a marine archaeologist--hires on to participate in Phil Rackham's salvage operation in the Florida Keys. He is hoping that Rackham will make him rich, not suspecting the true riches he'll eventually confront.

    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!

    Prodigal Father

    This novel is not incredible, but very enjoyable. Each page and chapter keeps a reader thirsting for what comes next. In a way this is both a contemporary novel and a historical. Just about every other chapter is in two different stories that are very different, but at the same time similar in theory and lesson. The characters are easy to come to admire and appreciate even the proverbial "bad guys". At times in some chapters there were parts where I felt that I was overrun with information, but then in the next part of the story I felt those two page of words were necessary after all even though while reading through them I slightly lost interest. One of the best skills as a writer that I enjoyed while reading my first novel from Tom Morrisey was the way that he opened a next chapter going from one century to another and truly weaving the stories together in a way that fit perfectly. Over all this is a pretty great book that really gets a reader into the world of contemporary treasure hunters and opens a port hole of insight into the world of repentant pirates. I recommend it.
