uring the Year of Our Lord,
Sixteen Hundred Nineteen, the cargo ship Santa Susanna was
overtaken by the pirate vessel Sea Devil, out of Ocracoke.
In the hold, the pirates found the richest cargo ever to
leave the Americas, four million pounds of Spanish plunder.
The Sea Devil tried to set course for Tortuga to split the
haul, but a raging storm hit her and she wrecked on an
uncharted island, Jakal. There, in a secret location, the
men buried the treasure. Wild and treacherous, the island
took the 200 souls of the Sea Devil, one by one. A single
crewman, Wretched O'Riley survived to build a raft and make
Years later, on his deathbed, old
Wretched made a map, tore it into three pieces and sent one
to each of his three sons: Mordachai Fingers, Rickets
O'Riley and Black Harry Adams. All born of different
mothers, they've hated and mistrusted each other from birth.
Now, Morgan Adams, Black Harry's only daughter must sieze
the map from her three uncles and claim the treasure for her
own. Fate would have it that a fourth brother, perhaps the
greatest pirate of them all, stalks the treasure as well.
Dawg Brown, harvester of souls and Spanish gold will stop at
nothing to challenge Morgan's claim to the riches that have
become her legacy.
