The parents of a friend of Henry's have gone missing - disappeared from the very deck of their boat in the Caribbean. The only lead Henry and Dolf have is an account of a ghostly galleon seen in the waters, and a huge tentacle of mist. Exploring the history and myth of the pirates of the past, Henry and Dolf uncover a cursed crew of pirates, that lead them to no other than the deadly Edward Teach - Blackbeard himself. But what's keeping them sailing beyond their deaths? And how and why are they building a crew of live prisoners? It's up to Henry Hunter to survive monster waves and befriend a crazy local seadog and merfolk to solve the mystery and put the pirates back in their watery graves!
