About the Book
Pirates, Scoundrels, and Saints: PARAISO: Book One
Pirates are still out there, flintlock pistols and schooners traded for assault rifles and black-painted Zodiacs.
Based on his experience as an international lawyer and pilot, Timothy Grant Acker tells a riveting tale of modern-day pirates in the unpredictable waters of the Caribbean.
The statute of limitations has run, so the story can be told.
