Originally Reviewed for Midwest Book Review

Having a pirate for a father leads to more harm than good. The Pirate's Bastard is an adventurous tale following Edward Marshall as he's dragged into his father's trade by Ignatius Pell, a friend of his father and has plenty of blackmail to counter Edward's protests. A fun story of treasure hunting and the notoriety of the father, The Pirate's Bastard is a fine addition to any historical fiction collection.
