The "Black Corsair" is a Dutch nobleman who seeks revenge for the actions of a Spanish governor who dishonored his family. His first mission will be to try to rescue the body of his brother, the "Red Corsair", for which he enters incognito in Maracaibo. Then he embarks for the Caribbean seas to attack ships that come from Spain. In one of the assaults he falls in love with a young Hispanic noblewoman. With a stirred heart he takes refuge in the Turtle Island.  A good story that will entertain readers.
