Ever since the last botched smuggling job, First Mate Bea and her crew can barely afford fuel let alone a barrel of grog. So when a gentleman from Old Germany offers a fortune for stealing a locked box off a British merchant ship, Bea dives on the opportunity. However, their employer conveniently forgot to mention the military guarding this box and the contents inside, so incendiary they could spark a war throughout Europe.
If the crew of the Desire doesn't polish their pistols and prepare for a hell of a fight, they'll end up worse than grounded. Everyone from the Brits to the mercenaries will kill for the contents of that box and while Bea and the others can fend for themselves on land, no one survives an airship crash.
