Through storytelling, he has earned the love and respect of his daughter and endured the trials of mourning his beloved wife. Now, just weeks after the tragedy that shook his entire world, the Professor has important decisions to make.

As he embarks on his yearly solo sailing trip, he contemplates whether to keep sailing into oblivion or to return to his previous life. But when his small sailboat is boarded by Russian pirates, that decision is quickly-and violently-ripped out of his control.

Now bruised, broken, and missing key parts of his memory, the Professor finds himself aboard a disguised World War II gunboat-and much to the happiness of the pirate crew on board, he has somehow acquired the culinary skills of a master chef. While he faces new death-defying adventures on the high seas, will the professor-turned-pirate eventually unearth the clues he needs to unlock the secrets of his past?

The action-packed second installment in a series, The Professor and the Pirates reveals the fate of the eponymous Professor in a swashbuckling tale of high-stakes adventure you'll have to read to believe.
