ABOUT THE BOOK
Privateers by Charlie Newton

Privateers is the action-packed novel your summer reading list has been waiting for. From pirates and treasure, to war and conspiracy, it will have you by the throat from the very beginning.
World War I rages. US marines storm Haiti’s Banque Nationale, loot $26 million in gold, then vanish. A century later, clues surface during the demolition of a Chicago racetrack, pointing to the Corazón Santo–the notorious triangle of Havana, Kingston, and Port-au-Prince. Three fierce, vibrant women reunite to hunt the treasure, hoping it will buy their survival from a long-buried, catastrophic misjudgment. They conscript a streetwise Chicago horseplayer’s help, then risk a return into the Caribbean’s mangrove jungles and mountains that have tried to kill them before. The uneasy partners are quickly swallowed in a terrifying labyrinth of shadow government and modern-day piracy where a final choice will be forced upon them: gold, survival, or redemption?
WHAT CAN I WIN?
We have a treasure chest of prizes up for grabs, and you won’t want to miss them!
The most important thing for any pirate – is the booty. We’ve got a $150 gift voucher, redeemable for any number of worldly treasures.
Of course, we can’t have you book-less, so we have a signed copy of Privateers up for grabs! Signed by author Charlie Newton, and not Davy Jones. But that’s not all!
While we can’t endorse being three sheets to the wind, we want all scallywags to be fully equipped with a pirate’s most vital asset – rum! We’ve got a $100 liquor voucher to redeem at your nearest port, to keep the fire in your belly when it’s cold at sea.
Instead of taking a cutlass to a sailor that has wronged you, we’ve got a game of Operation for the lucky winner! Be careful, you don’t want your ‘patient’ to feed the fish!
Heave ho and get entering!
