Flyntlock Bones: The Ghost of Scarletbeard


Flyn is a little suspicious of the stranger who approaches Captain Watkins, seeking to buy the Black Hound. It’s a tempting offer, especially as there’s no work for the pirate detective crew. However, Watkins is true to his aim to wait for a job to turn up.

However, the job that arrives is one unlike any other. It seems that the Countess of Bohemia’s jewels have been stolen- again. Yet the thief was sighted and recognised by the Countess. It seems she’s certain it was Captain Scarletbeard, the rogue who robbed her before. However Captain Scarletbeard is dead, so how can this be?

Is it possible that to recover the jewels and chase down Scarletbeard, the crew will have to force down a magic potion that will enable them to travel to…. Davy Jones’ Locker! However is any of this justified or safe? Could it all be a plot?

We’re on a third journey with Flyntlock Bones and the crew of the Black Hound in The Ghost of Scarletbeard. Once again, this story can stand alone. However, the full series, with its clever plotting, ingenious twists and turns and tricky characters, alongside detailed, exacting illustrations, is a triumph.

Then again, how do they even know that Scarletbeard’s sighting was real? How can a ghostly pirate get up to scrapes in the earthly world?
We’ve loved the Flyntlock Bones‘ series, from Derek Keilty and Mark Elvins. Not only is the storyline ingenious, witty and daring, but the illustrations are dramatic and inspiring! What’s more, we’ve come to know the characters will since our introduction, Flyntlock Bones The Sceptre of the Pharaohs. Therefore, we are aware of Flyn’s creative thinking, the Captain’s insight and Red’s magic skills. It seems they’ll all be needed in this adventure, when they’re taking on crafty adversaries who are quick to double cross!
