Finally reaching Nassau, Anne and her friends, Cara and Coyle Flynn, seek out their uncle, Alastair Flynn, for work and safety. Meanwhile, Teach’s ship, the Deliverance, is attacked by pirates. The captain refuses to fight and is killed, causing Teach to take command. Teach and the crew are arrested for mutiny in Nassau by Governor Webb. Webb releases Teach but holds the crew hostage to force Teach into capturing the pirate, George Easton. Anne and Beth discover Mrs. Webb's secret, but she kills Beth and tortures Anne to hide her crimes. Teach rescues Anne and locates Easton, but realizes Webb is the real criminal. Joining forces with Easton, Teach returns to Nassau to find his crew and Coyle dead and Alastair kidnapped. Webb is killed during the confrontation, but a new threat, Lord Pelham, takes his place. Escaping with Cara, Teach and Easton join with Anne on planning how to overthrow Lord Pelham.
