‘My name is Silas Orr. I’ve been called many things in my life: slave, brother, runaway. But on board the Tenacity I’m just a ‘boy’’.
Found shipwrecked by the crew of the feared pyrate ship Tenacity, Silas is given a choice - take his chances in a row boat on the open water, or swear to the pyrates code and become cabin boy for the Tenacity’s captain, the infamous Black Johnnie.
What follows is a swashbuckling adventure which takes Silas from the shores of Jamaica to the ports of Glasgow on a dangerous journey of thievery, cannon fire and kidnap.
