One man has been guarding the existence of a parchment that contains clues to the location of Edward Teach's secret treasure trove on an Island in the Caribbean, said to be guarded by a macabre human spirit manifesting itself with a golden human skull. But the parchment is missing a vital code, to decipher the clues.





PLEASE NOTE: That books are written in a completely different way to screenplays, with scenes played out in a different order, typically with around half the number of pages to tell the same story for film.



PLOT: An earth tremor in Jamaica gains attention from Blue Shield and UNESCO, engaging John Storm to survey Port Royal, Jamaica, to investigate the archaeology of the sunken city as a potential World Heritage Site. John discovers an engraving lodged in a secret compartment, buried with the remains of Captain Henry Morgan's coffin, the pirate turned privateer, former Governor of Jamaica, who passed in 1688.


This news gets out (BBC Jill Bird - world service) and reaches England where Lord Huntington puts two and two together, realising that the engraving John Storm has found is likely the key to the parchment his family have been guarding since Blackbeard's death in 1718, 30 years earlier.


To complicate matters further, a cashiered US Navy Captain, William Gray, learns of these events, and joins Lord Huntington's party, introducing John Long and his cutthroats. The pirate party manage to board the Elizabeth Swann, while John and his crew are distracted, by stealing one of their ID passes, obtaining a picture of the wooden engraving. They then head to Skeleton (Skull) Island, with clearance from the Brazilian Navy, but also putting out a watching brief to prevent others.


Dodging the naval patrols of Cuba (US), Brazil and Mexico, John Storm manages to land on Skeleton (Skull) Island, braving the curse, aiming to catch up with Huntington's band...
