With handsome pirates and exotic mysteries, Crossed Bones is a buckle-my-swash-me-hearties adventure of the high seas based on the real-life raids on the Cornish coast by 17th century Barbary corsairs, who kidnapped men, women and children for the Moroccan slave markets (which was sadly the fate of one of author Johnson's ancestors).
