Captain Flint and his pirate crew capture a merchant vessel that may contain the clues needed to capture a Spanish fortune, but someone got to the clue first. Flint must win over his crew while fending off other pirates as well as the Royal Navy.
This pirate adventure centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men, and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island.
Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver.
Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day-a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.
