It’s the 17th century, and in the sleepy fishing village of Newton Ferrers, the young Henry Every is desperate to escape a life of poverty and family strife. When an unexpected tragedy occurs, he flees to Plymouth, to the dark taverns haunted by pirates and press gangs. Forced into a life at sea then lured into piracy, Henry, now the infamous ‘King of Pirates’, discovers a treasure so precious that he goes to extraordinary lengths to secure it.

Still reeling from the excitement of his previous adventure, Chester Bentley arrives at Devon’s oldest boarding school and is quickly drawn into another mystery. Who does the ghostly laughter belong to that taunts him late at night? And what secrets lie in the little village that he is led to? Bentley will have to exercise his unique gift for serendipity and survival, as he contends with the school bullies and a sinister stranger, hard on the heels of his exploits.

This mystery will whirl you from the shores and countryside of Devon to the high seas and exotic lands beyond, compelling you to ask yourself: how far would you go to protect ‘the greatest treasure in all the world’?
