Set in 1722, the same year that 16-year-old Ben Franklin contributes to the 'Dogood Papers' on moral topics and J.S. Bach publishes The well-tempered Clavier, John "Spider" Rush reluctantly joined a crew of cut-throat pirates.
John and his best friend Ezra planned that after this voyage they would live a life of peace. On the pirate ship, Plymouth Dream, someone recognizes Ezra as the "witches son" and fears for his life. One night John woke up and saw that his friend Ezra wasn't in his hammock, so he went up to search for his friend and found him dead! He knew Ezra was murdered and he vowed to find the man who did this and render to him what he deserves a hundred times more. With an amateur detective at work, Spider would have to become an 18th century Sherlock Holmes and start deducting. Try doing that on a ship full of murderers. A story of pirating that wouldn't be the life for me! For those mystery buffs, pick this one up---you won't be sorry mate.
Spider stood by Ezra's shoulder. "this is not good..."
"No," Ezra said. "Not at all good."
