Warren and Marty manage to free their captain and return to Nassau where they meet Calico Jack Rackman and Anne Bonney. The four pirates sail off to the Jamaica and seize a Spanish merchant ship with deadly results.
Can Warren ever return to his frantic parents? What is the secret Marty has hidden so cleverly? Will the two friends be able to continue their growing relationship over the span of two hundred years?"
