    Fife player Jesse Bollier was kidnapped and dumped aboard a slave ship, where he was to play music so the slaves could keep their muscles strong and bodies profitable. He was sickened by the thought of taking part in such a despicable business, but, to the men of the ship, a "slave dancer" was necessary to ensure their share of the profit. After four months of hazardous sailing, Jessie was to face a final horror that would stay with him the rest of his life.
