Captain Hook has been captured by the British navy and is soon to be hung.
As Hook tells his life story to his captor, it becomes clear that the fearsome pirate was once a scholarly boy - until one fateful night in Port Royal when he meets the volatile Peter Pan...
Raise the Jolly Roger and discover the book that opened thousands of eyes to the possibility that, once upon a time, Captain Hook was not the villain we know him to be.
Since its publication in June of 2012, this original story takes you through Captain James Hook's rise to piracy, including his first confrontation with Long John Silver and his service on the Queen Anne's Revenge alongside Blackbeard at the Charleston Blockade.
This book is not a retelling of the events of J. M. Barrie's beloved novel. It's a defense of the world's most famous pirate, told by the man himself.
Captain Hook has reason and wit behind his hatred for Peter Pan...If only someone would listen.
