Meticulously researched and well written. Zacks offers a detailed glimpse of Captain Kidd, Kidd's nemesis, the forgotten Robert Culliford, and life on the high seas over 300 years ago.

This was the best history I have read in some time. It took a while because of the detail Zacks covered in his story. The last 25 or 30% of the book made the time worth it. The tension and excitement of the end read like a novel. This book totally changed my view of Captain Kidd and gave me a fresh perspective on early America.

This is a very interesting book. Another reminder about why you should never cut private deals with politicians. Also a fine example of how a good file clerk can save or break you neck. Really.
