In this sequel to Curse of the Black Avenger, Blood Sails, Dark Hearts, high school freshman Ricky Bradshaw has evaded Captain LaFoote, only to land in the brigg. Now he faces the hangman’s noose at the hands of British authorities—the charge? Piracy. His fellow inmate, the mysterious William Shakespeare, seems to give good advice . . . And yet after the commodore’s daughter, Rebecca, denounces Ricky before the tribunal, he barely escapes by cliff diving only to awaken in another, if possible darker dream—if it is a dream. Still Ricky has one more chance to save a crew of orphaned children, win Rebecca’s heart and find his deceased father before it’s too late.

This is a book boys will read; loaded with speculative fantasy, dry humor, a strong dose of violence and with a sprinkling of romance. Dead Calm, Bone Dry, continues Rickie’s journey through mayhem and betrayals and what becomes more and more like a living hell. His quest mirrors his struggle to forgive, and with life and death and heaven and hell in the balance, Ricky must choose. The Caribbean Chronicles is one of those series were the first book seems incomprehensible without the second. But for those who will soldier through, there’s great entertainment value, along with a powerful and uplifting spiritual message.
