USA Today published a good review of Pirate Latitudes, calling it a “lusty, rollicking 17th-century adventure that should make for an even better movie.”
The newspaper also included a short sidebar article “One More Novel to be Finished” on the same page.
Crichton's publisher, HarperCollins' Jonathan Burnham, and his longtime agent, Lynn Nesbit, both say they didn't know about [Pirate Latitudes] but weren't surprised. "Michael was fascinated with pirates," Nesbit says.
The article also notes that “a writer will be chosen soon to finish” Crichton’s one-third completed technothriller.
