Premise:

In 1715 in the West Indies, the pirates of New Providence Island threaten maritime trade in the region. The laws of every civilized nation declare them hostis humani generis; enemies of all mankind. In response, the pirates adhere to a doctrine of their own...war against the world.

A prequel to "Treasure Island" set two decades earlier, the story follows the feared Captain Flint, his hunt of the Spanish treasure galleon Urca de Lima, and the arrival of a young sailor named John Silver.
