Tom Roberts: Pirate Investigator (On the Horizon)
Cast among pirates, hard-boiled theologian Tom Roberts must solve a series of crimes, or walk the plank!
Tom Roberts is a 17th Century natural philosopher, zealous theologian and sometimes diplomat with the soul of a post-war, hard-boiled detective. When his ship sinks in the West Indies, he has no choice but to cast his lot with a crew of English privateers who he is convinced are pirates.
What follows is a series of mysteries, mishaps and murders that stretch Tom’s lofty morals but tickle his investigative instincts. Can he solve these crimes and still obey God’s will aboard a pirate ship?
