Review:Razor sharp Dao swords decorated with human hair, pirate crews disguised as women in order to catch their quarry off guard, an actual woman pirate - the terrifying Grace (Grania) O'Malley, who plied her murderous trade for 25 years - these phenomena and oddities are enumerated and gaudily displayed in a "can't put it down" assemblage tracing piracy from the Middle Ages to contemporary highjackings of luxury yachts in the Caribbean.
