The Mary Celeste by John Maxwell( Computer File )
5 editions published between 1979 and 1986 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Brian Freemantle resolves one of the greatest maritime mysteries of all time What happened to the Mary Celeste? A merchant vessel sailing out of New York with an Italy-bound shipment of commercial alcohol, the brigantine began her fateful journey in November 1872. One month later she was sighted on an apparent return course, her sails set but torn, her deck abandoned. The ship was in good condition, with her cargo intact. There was no sign of an attack, but the crew had vanished. What was to follow spawned the most famous maritime ghost story of all time: Convinced of murder and mystery, the British court investigator suppressed evidence to bolster his case. Rumors abounded of sea monster attack, Barbary Coast piracy, and the crew having been sucked from the vessel as it sailed over the site of the fabled Atlantis. Regardless, the mystery remained unsolved. Until now. In this thrilling retelling, Brian Freemantle depicts for the first time how the truth was turned into fantasy and legend, largely through the imagination of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s personal collection
Hell's fire by John Maxwell( Computer File )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
A retelling of the classic saga of the mutiny on the Bounty, from master of suspense Brian Freemantle On April 28, 1789, the H.M.S. Bounty was very far from home. After a long journey around the Cape of Good Hope, Captain William Bligh and his crew emerged into the hot, still air of the South Pacific, and a kind of madness began to take hold. Led by Fletcher Christian, eighteen unhappy sailors set upon Bligh in the night, and at sword-point forced him and his officers into a small rowboat, to try their luck upon the open sea. But why? Although it is history & rsquo;s most famous mutiny, the events leading up to Christian & rsquo;s fateful decision are shrouded in mystery. In this thrilling account, master espionage author Brian Freemantle imagines what might have influenced a loyal sailor to turn mutineer.
