Warner’s deadly plot.

“Cobb’s 14th book comes complete with pirates,
mysterious messages and a magic ring. . . . The
characters are rich and beautifully rendered, and the
story is sprinkled with humor. . . . Much of the
dialogue − especially between Peter and Monk and
Antonio and Marcus − is delightfully silly.  . . . [A]
spirited swashbuckling tale of mystery and magic.”
