This project has been changed into a Dramatic Reading, Jan 2021Come along with Francis Morgan – heir of a powerful Wall Street stockbroker and descendant of a 17th-century pirate turned governor of Jamaica – on many swashbuckling adventures along the coast of Central America and in the interior of Panama. Hot blooded women (rated G), treacherous authorities, drunken jailers, ancient Maya secrets, quicksand, secret passages, harrowing justice systems, remote people, a lost society with a queen that holds mystical powers, and an enterprising seller of secrets . . . pepper every chapter with humor, intrigue, or suspense - and sometimes all three! Who will Leoncia end up with? Will Francis’s fortune survive his absence from New York? Is everyone what he or she seems to be? (Scott and Lynette Caulkins)
