They slipped in and out like ghosts, shadows dancing from wall to wall. They talked in low whispers with my father. . . .

Daniel Markham loved his fatherís mysterious friends, visiting in the dead of night but always gone by morning. He never imagined they could be pirates. But when the Markhamsí merchant vessel is plundered by the pirate ship Tempest Galley and his father shot dead, Daniel canít deny the truth. And now, orphaned and alone, Daniel is trapped and faced with a choice: join the crew or die. As the Tempest Galley sets sail for the Red Sea, where finding treasure ships is as easy as dropping a bucket of pitch, Daniel vows to avenge his father. But nothing is that simple. Unprepared for the temptations of pirate life and for the captainís inexplicable kindness toward him, Daniel knows only one thing for certain: one false step on a pirate ship could be deadly, and heíll do anything to stay alive.
