Robert, a thirteen year old English boy who has recently moved to America, is involved in a plane crash whilst travelling with his family to see his critically ill sister, Sophie. He finds himself on an unchartered island that appears to be inhabited by bloodthirsty 18th century pirates, living their lives according to the pirate codes of that time.
When the pirates capture the family, it is Robert’s passion for pirate lore that allows him to work out what is really going on behind the pirates’ frightening façade.

The family learn of the pirates’ history and customs, including the fact that they have created a miraculous medicine which could save Sophie’s life. But Robert discovers that the Captain is hiding a terrible secret that will have a devastating impact on anyone needing to take the cure, including Sophie.

When the island is taken over by present day criminals, will the pirates still possess enough pirate skills to be able to fend off a modern enemy with 21st century weapons? Can Robert and his family help find a solution to the Captain’s secret dilemma? Even if they can, how will they deal with Dr Baines, a fellow passenger in the plane, who is bent on acquiring the medicine for her own personal gain, thereby exposing the pirates’ peaceful culture to the glare of modern society – a society with which they have had no contact for over three hundred years?
