Before my mother died at the age of forty-two, she confided in me her deepest, darkest, secret. The man whom I had thought to be my father for twenty-one years, Japhet Thyme, was not my real father. My mother had been pregnant when they met, and assuming I was his, they had married soon after they had begun dating. My mother confided all of this and more during her final days.
Thus begins the story of Justin Thyme, and his search for his real father, the pirate Erich Craigie. From Pennsylvania to South Carolina to the treacherous waters of the Bermuda Triangle, Justin searches for the answers to questions he may be better off not knowing.
