A forgotten manuscript, buried for centuries in the crypt of a remote and isolated monastery in the island of Kithira, brings to light the bloodstained 'course' of the pirates, brothers Barbarossa.
From a small and insignificant fishermen's village in Lesvos to the Sultan's courts in Constantinople and from the dark and humid dungeons of the Venetian castles to the luxurious palaces in Algiers and northern Africa, this story - of the most unrelenting pirates of the Mediterranean - spins forcefully like a tornado and carries the reader away. It transports him to a historical era where he can breathlessly watch ruthless but gallant fortune - hunters, conspirator leaders and insidious representatives of the Church.
Arouz and Hayredin Barbarossa, Andrea Doria, Suleiman the Magnificent and a few others are some of the characters of the book which having been dispossessed of their historical 'attributes' are metamorphosed into active and vigorous personalities. With their rivalry, antagonism, hatred, passion for power and authority, corruption, assassinations, and criminal acts but also with their sagacity and military wisdom carve the material which makes this last work of the writer stand out as an exciting and irresistible novel.
