Summary: This tale takes place a year after the happenings in "Without Fail" and "In Absentia" (means: it's highly recommended that you read those tales first, especially "In Absentia"). Mr. Norrington has been demoted and is now captain of the "Joyful Molly", a ship best described as a rum barrel with sails.
When he and his second in command, Lt. Gillette, fall into the hands of pirates, Mr. Turner decides that it's high time for Captain Jack Sparrow to do something useful for a change and drags the unwilling pirate into an adventure that might end in disaster for everybody.
In the meantime, Mr. Norrington and Mr. Gillette do their best to survive, and Mr. Norrington learns that he really knows nothing about his 2nd in command.
