"I was paralysed with fear and confusion. I knew I would not be able to get the boat into the water before the pirates arrived. My hand went instinctively to the pistol in my belt. My only hope was to stand and fight." Nathan has joined his father for his first-ever voyage by sea - sailing to explore the wilds of the Amazon. But they have not been at sea for long before they are ambushed by pirates. Nathan is taken hostage by the infamous Captain Graham and given a terrible ultimatum: join the murderous pirate crew or face execution. A fast-paced, gripping story with a courageous protagonist!
