Death to Pinto
Tony Cutajar has released his second e-book, an adventure story entitled Mewt lil Pinto.
The story narrates the life of Emmanuel Pinto who was Grandmaster of the Order of St John for 33 years, during which time Malta witnessed much turmoil as well as huge developments.
In the book we come across two incidents when Maltese slaves rebelled against the owners of Turkish galleys and managed to bring the vessels to Malta.
The consequences could have been as dramatic as the murder of the grandmaster and the fall of Malta into the hands of the Muslims.
Besides these mysterious events, the author gives details on the history of the Order of St John, the Great Siege, the building of Valletta and slavery.
The story can be boughtin e-book format or printed copies can be ordered for delivery at www.cutajar.net/tony/buy-books/pinto/.
