Red At Dawn quickly captures its readers, wrapping them in the age-old dramas of intense greed, cruelty, rape, murder, and bitter-sweet romance. David K. Evans crafts a tight plot with vivid glimpses of the turbulent 1700s. Seen through the eyes of Peter Halsey, a young New England skipper of a fishing schooner captured by maniacal pirate Captain Ned Lukas, the tale swiftly unfolds onboard the aging brigantine Rebeckah, with ports-of-call and vivid drama that include the Slave Coast of West Africa; mid-ocean capture of a venerable Spanish Galleon; a slave market on the Spanish coast of Central America, and onward to the beautiful “deserted” shores of Roatán. Drawing upon his knowledge from over four decades of research on the island, the author paints a vivid and exciting portrait of life among elusive maroons and castaways of the 1700s, largely gone unrecorded by History; describing their desperate attempt to survive and protect their women and freedom from vicious attacks by pirates who periodically invade the small island. It is here story soars.

Read about "modern day" pirates on Roatan in "The Judas Bird" by D.K. Evans. Until recently Roatán was a little-known Caribbean island, but in 1995 an evil has descended. A small gang of murderous, modern day land-pirates abruptly become the law, terrorizing the island’s once peaceful population. Francisco Downer, an old man with a mysterious ability to see into the past is about to lose his family’s land to these pirates. To thwart this frightening evil, the old man turns to a young, prior Peace Corps volunteer who once lived in Francisco’s home. After an absence of five years, Todd returns to find the delicate fabric of the island’s peaceful culture under immediate threat, devastated by a cascade of rapid changes that leave terror and murder in their wake.
