Captain Blood - by Rafael Sabatini

Captain Blood
- by Rafael Sabatini

Captain Blood is a 1922 novel by Rafael Sabatini. (US Edition)  (£1.29 UK Edition)  [Please note the UK index is part of a multi-novel collection.  The novel on its own is much more pricey.]  It was popular as a novel and popular as a film with Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone.

Here is a bit from a home invasion where the military is looking for, and finding rebels:
Then the Captain stepped to the press, and pulled open one of the wings of its massive oaken door. He took the huddled inmate by the collar of his doublet, and lugged him out into the open.

"And who the devil's this?" quoth he. "Another nobleman?"

Mr. Blood had a vision of those gallows of which Captain Hobart had spoken, and of this unfortunate young shipmaster going to adorn one of them, strung up without trial, in the place of the other victim of whom the Captain had been cheated. On the spot he invented not only a title but a whole family for the young rebel.

"Faith, ye've said it, Captain. This is Viscount Pitt, first cousin to Sir Thomas Vernon, who's married to that slut Moll Kirke, sister to your own colonel, and sometime lady in waiting upon King James's queen."
It is a great adventure tale with a quick thinking accidental Irish pirate!
