'There is at least one laugh per page' New York Times
Hilary Westfield is a pirate. She's daring, brave, fearless, and . . . in a rut. Maybe she hasn't found any treasure lately. And maybe she isn't fighting off as many scallywags as she'd like. But does that mean she and her loyal crew deserve to be kicked out of the ranks of the Very Nearly Honourable League of Pirates?
There is only one thing to do - find a daring mission worthy of her fearless reputation. Hilary sets sail on a swashbuckling expedition that may or may not involve a kidnapped Enchantress, bumbling inspectors, a mysterious group called the Mutineers, and - most terrifying of all - a High Society ball.
