Hollis's brother Robbie is accused of murder when he awakens to find a bloody body on the dock next to his workboat. Why are all the homes of poverty-striken Shellpile Island sporting new additions? Where did the residents find the money to buy all those new trucks? Sluggo's three wives lure Hollis into their trap not knowing that a 300-year-old pirate has their number. Join Sam, Hollis, and the residents of Shellpile to find out if Hollis gets out of this one alive.
