       Additional Information  
      Though it couldn't be real, pianist Mike de Wolf suddenly finds himself the embattled main character in an adventure story being written by his friend, Horace Hackett. Transported inexplicably to another place and another time, he is embroiled in a desperate battle, fighting for his life as the notorious Miguel de Lobo.

    After narrowly escaping death on the Spanish Main, Mike-as-Miguel deceives his English enemies with a ruse of apparent friendship and falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful flame-headed woman who has just rescued him from the razor-sharp blade of a cutlass.

    Meanwhile, back in present day New York, Horace determinedly plots the demise of the villainous de Lobo, unaware anything is amiss in his swiftly changing story--the world in which Mike struggles to survive. But as the story unfolds, Mike-as-Miguel stumbles on a way he might possibly alter his iminent fate. To do so means to leave his lovely rescuer. To stay means almost certain death.
