Well-sustained, action-packed pirate yarn which should provide good material to bridge that gap for the boys emerging from the comic book stage. Pirates, lost gentry, boarded ships, a captive cabin boy -- ingredients for a story of Capt. Cheap pirate lord of Tortuga, who conceived the plan to raid Barbados, stronghold of Sir Robert Scarlett, whose wife and infant son he had captured years before. A sea battle and a dramatic ending resolve identities, and Justin Blade, young Scarface, emerges as the long lost young Scarlett. Straight adventure- well done.
