Hundreds of British soldiers lie dead in a forest...the Royal Navy retreats back to England... and the shores of New Providence Island have never been bloodier. With the help of Eleanor Guthrie, Woodes Rogers transforms Nassau into a fortress without walls, as Captain Flint amasses his fleet, intent on striking the final blow. Meanwhile, from the interior...an insurgency builds, fuelled by the legend of "Long John Silver". But as Flint and his allies are about to learn, the closer civilization comes to defeat, the more desperately, and destructively, it will fight back. And amidst the chaos, only one thing remains certain: it has never been more dangerous to call oneself a pirate.
