What would you do if cast adrift on a derelict ship? With no one but a monkey for company? And a crew of skeletons!
Chadsworth Dillingham better figure out pretty fast. The ship is slowly sinking, he has no water to drink, and no one back home on Bermuda knows where he is. In the year 1799, young Chad will need all of his wits, and some sailor’s luck, to avoid Davy Jones’ locker at the bottom of the ocean.
The Caribbean is home to cutthroat pirates, French frigates, and American privateers, all looking to make their fortunes by fair means or foul. Sure, finding sunken treasure would be cool, but surviving a roaring hurricane or the deadly embrace of the Sargasso Sea might be better. Not to mention evading pirates looking for the same treasure.
And if he does make it home to Bermuda, maybe years later, will his parents even recognize him? And what will they think of the friends Chad makes on his voyage? Or the enemies that track him back to Bermuda?
