Description

Amazon.com In The Last Pirate of New York, author Rich Cohen takes readers on a narrative

nonfiction adventure back to the New York underworld of the mid-1800s. Drawing on archival

materials and including newspaper accounts of the day, Cohen introduces us to the last man

hanged as a pirate in this fair city on Friday the 13th, 1860: a handsome, charismatic thief and

killer called Albert Hicks. Hicks roamed the ports and dives of the day, working for a time with a

sidekick named Tom Stone, “Sundance to Hicksâ€s Butch,― but by 1860 Hicks was once

again working alone. Hicksâ€s final crime was the brutal murder of three men aboard an oyster

sloop; he killed them, stole their money and valuables, then attempted to sink the ship. The ghost

ship was discovered with frightening evidence of the bloody crime, and the search for the killer

began. Cohen recounts not only this heinous crime, but the life of a man who in a strange way

embodied the soul of America at the time, “courageous yet grotesque.― Hicks gave a

confession in order to supply his soon-to-be widow with funds after his death, and thousands

flocked to his hanging. Cohenâ€s remarkable tale is a fascinating window on an early

underworld legend in a city that made a star out of a killer. —Seira Wilson, Amazon Book Review

Read more “Rich Cohenâ€s The Last Pirate of New York is a compulsively readable

nonfiction tale of mystery and murder. He captures the cityâ€s teeming waterfront of the mid-

1800s, crawling with every conceivable Dickensian degenerate and then some, with brilliance. He

is one of the finest storytellers there is, and The Last Pirate of New York takes its place alongside

Erik Larsonâ€s The Devil in the White City and Nathaniel Philbrickâ€s In the Heart of the Sea.

Pick it up; you wonâ€t put it down.―—Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights

“The Last Pirate of New York is an absolutely incredible true story. From the opening scene of

a blood-drenched ship drifting in the fog, severed fingers lying on deck, to the evocative depictions

of the New York waterfront teeming with murderers, mountebanks, and crooks, this is not a book

for the faint of heart. Rich Cohenâ€s research is masterful, and he brings alive nineteenthcentury

New York in raucous and fascinating detail. This is history at its best, full of drama, crime,

dogged detectives, curious characters, smoky taverns, and dark byways. I highly recommend this

remarkable book.―—Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author ofÂ

The Lost City of the Monkey God “The Last Pirate of New York is a riveting tale of Gotham

Cityâ€s first gangster and most notorious serial killer. Rich Cohen, a superb writer and brilliant

storyteller, delivers a chilling true-crime narrative—from murders to manhunt, courtroom to

gallows. This book takes you to the darkest places of the human soul, and will keep you up all


night once you start it.
