The Pirate's Daughter is a well regarded Mystery novel by Robert Girardi.
Second novel printed by Delacorte Press, in 1997.
Washington Post Book World, 29 June 1997 "Girardi...has a real gift for language and the apt metaphor or simile....His peripheral characters, a rich, eccentric lot, are fascinating."—William Browning Spencer
Publishers Weekly, The Pirate's Daughter, a "contemporary tale of piracy, slavery and other acts of skullduggery," "again straddles the line between the real and wildly improbable."
Writing in the New York Times Book Review, Paula Friedman felt that Girardi's "rendering of [the pirate island] is lush and commanding, despite the horror it reveals."
