In 1803, Jamie Sharpe, a cocky Boston boy, graduates top in his class from Bullard's Academy. Hoping to become a ship's captain like his father, Jamie has worked every odd mariner job and even sailed his own sloop to Halifax. However, his dreams are shattered when Captain Cutts, a wealthy slave trader, demands payment on a note he holds on the Sharpe family fortune. To satisfy the note, Jamie must travel across Massachusetts to get money from his grandfather. During the return trip, Jamie is ambushed and taken aboard a slaver bound for Africa. Jamie will need to grow up quickly if he intends to survive a Sail into Treachery.
