BuccaneerBook - 2008
Sailing across the Caribbean, Hector Lynch falls into the hands of the notorious buccaneer, Captain John Coxon. Hector's two friends, Dan and Jacques, are released when Coxon mistakes Hector as the nephew of Sir Thomas Lynch. Coxon delivers Hector to Sir Henry Morgan, a bitter enemy of Governor Lynch. The captain is expecting to curry favour with Morgan but is publicly humiliated when it is revealed that Hector is not a member of the Governor's family. From then on, Coxon seeks to revenge himself on Hector. Eventually Hector teams up again with Dan and Jacques and the group joins an expedition along the Panama coast. Their aim is to raid one of the biggest Spanish gold mines, but their plans are soon halted by some angry Spaniards... and their clash has even more dramatic consequences.
