Bloody Jack, lowly ship’s boy, earns a mighty reputation. Formerly an orphan then signed on Her Majesty’s Ship the Dolphin as a ship’s boy, Jacky Farber is out on the high seas for some wild adventures. Jacky earns the nickname Bloody Jack when the Dolphin overtakes a pirate ship. Jacky is the only member of the crew to actually kill a pirate. Later, in self defense, Jacky kills a fellow shipmate, luckily, before the man can reveal Jacky’s secret. One day, while the ship is in port, Jacky visits a house of ill repute, just to learn the facts of life! [read gripping scene] Imagine the horror when Jacky’s true identity is revealed. After all, women on board a ship are considered bad luck!
