Overview

Drama on the high seas is explosive and wild in Pirate Queen: The Curse by R. Allen Downey. When bloodthirsty pirate Lai Choi San inexplicably returns a decade after vanishing in 1939, unspeakable horrors and fears are reborn. Myths abound: Is this pirate lady a ghost, an imposter, or the undead? It isn't until Lai hijacks a Chinese Nationalist yacht carrying $6,000,000 in gold and a mysteriously encoded microfilm that the truth unfolds. British intelligence learns that the film contains a top-secret Mao file and assigns two top agents to acquire the film-actress Loo Tao-hua and American ex-sailor Rick Reilly, both of whom possess unique paranormal powers. To find the elusive Lai, Loo and Reilly make her come to them by running an elaborate con game and recruit trusted friends including Haitian JD Cartier, with his voodoo gifts, and Branwen Smythe, a Wiccan priestess. Will the team's combined powers be enough to outwit a vicious pirate and avoid being drawn into a vengeful curse?
