The new Castaways of the Flying Dutchman novel comes alive - Redwall fashion - with a magnificent romp on the sea, and another in the robber-filled mountains of Spain!
Ben and Ned, the boy and dog who were sent on an angel's errand in Castaways of the Flying Dutchman, find themselves on board a Frenchman's pirate ship, pursued by not one but two ships - an English privateer and a Spanish buccaneer. They finally escape into the Pyrenees, only to stumble into an even more challenging adventure that takes them into very heart of the mountains, where they - and their new companions, a painter and a gypsy girl - must face the most evil robber of them all: the legendary Maguda Razan.
This is Jacques at his swashbuckling best. His editor says: "This is as good as it gets - as good as Redwall!"
