Danny Boy, being small of size was able to pass alongside the salting tub. Clutching a poker, he slipped into the powder room, where Captain Jenkins,  his officers and what crew-men remained loyal to King and Country were all gathered. Jenkins was rallying his men with a spirited rendition of "Rule Britannia!"

Danny struck the fuse in the keg of powder during the first verse. He let out the string.

No sooner had he lit the end of the fuse with a piece of incandescent metal, when the ship was buffeted by a large wave. A poorly stowed barrel slid from it's mooring and blocked the way out. The fuse burned on. The men still sang, except for the trouble-maker, who stood petrified in terror.

"Never, never, never shall be slaves" still echoed in the air, When the Dark Horse blew up.

Several of the survivors claimed that Danny Boy had tried to extinguish the fuse by spitting on it. If only provisions of sand had been made ready for such emergencies...

From that time on, the stower's name was cursed by all freebooters. And so ended in flame and death the tragic tale of a three-master now resting 80 feet under the waves of the balmy Indian Ocean.

Alone in the Dark 2

It is Christmas of 1924, three months after Alone in the Dark. "Supernatural Private Eye" Edward Carnby and his partner Ted Stryker are investigating the kidnapping of young Grace Saunders. The trail of clues leads to an old mansion named "Hell's Kitchen" - the home of an infamous gangster boss and his gang. Edward decides to pick up the trail when he learns of Ted's disappearance in the mansion. Unfortunately, Edward soon finds out that Ted has been murdered.

Carnby eventually finds out that the mobsters are the corporeal forms of the spirits of pirates that plundered the sea hundreds of years ago, the lot having sold their souls in exchange for eternal life through voodoo magic. Fighting his way into the house and ultimately onto a pirate ship hidden in the cliff on which Jack's house is built, Edward must survive, discover the secret of the pirates' apparent immortality, rescue little Grace, and find out why the pirates are so interested in her.
