They called it the devils graveyard in paradise, an uncharted island where pirates disappeared to lick their wounds and plan further acts of piracy upon the high seas. Only a few knew of its location and those that found it by chance never left, staying as residents in an ever growing graveyard.
Paradise it was with plenty of fresh water and fruit to lure unsuspecting ships to stop and refresh their supplies but it harboured a deadly disease. It was not the plague as the island was named after, for that was long gone, it was another more deadly one called piracy.
The area became notorious for ships and crews to go missing without trace. All but the foolhardy ventured there but a reputed fortune in treasure hidden on the island was too big an opportunity to miss by greedy bounty hunters and other pirates.
But where was its location?
