Dead Calm, Bone Dry
Just as Ricky is about to reach Port Charles where he’ll be tried for piracy, an ill wind blows a wretched soul into the ship’s brig. A mysterious seaman, William Shakespeare, tells of fleeing the Flying Dutchman, a ghost ship sailed by the dead, demons and worse. Before Ricky can learn more about this outlandish tale, he’s sentenced to hang. As the noose slips over his head, he bolts from the gallows and jumps into the sea.
With his soul at stake, and the lives of a crew of misfit orphans, Ricky faces a battle with pirates – both dead and alive – where the souls of the living and those yet-to-be born hang in the balance.
With the eternal future of Ricky’s dead dad on the line, a man who traded the temporal freedom of earthly pressures for eternal damnation, Ricky must face his greatest fear. But will he reach his dad before it s too late?
