Daniel's earliest memories are of his father's mysterious friends, who would visit at night, and leave treasures behind in the morning. When Daniel witnesses his father being shot in the head by someone he thought was his father's friend, he swears to avenge his dad. Against his will, he becomes a pirate, and it isn't until much later that he changes his mind about many things. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440418879, Paperback)

Daniel Markham loved his father’s mysterious friends, visiting in the dead of night but always gone by morning. He never imagined they could be pirates. But when the Markhams’ merchant vessel is plundered by the pirate ship Tempest Galley and his father shot dead in an act of revenge, Daniel can’t deny the truth. And now, orphaned and alone, Daniel is trapped and faced with a choice: Join the crew or die.

Unprepared for the temptations of pirate life and for the captain’s inexplicable kindness toward him, Daniel knows only one thing for certain: One false step on a pirate ship could be deadly, and he’ll do anything to stay alive.

From the Hardcover edition.
