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. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s personal collection

At the height of the Cold War, a British intelligence agent investigates a Russian defector with a deadly secretAdrian Dodds is a man without hobbies, friends, or family, who works a very peculiar job. Though he looks like a pencil pusher, he is a British counter-intelligence agent. In his own quiet, bureaucratic way, Dodds is vital to the security of the United Kingdom. His latest assignment is debriefing Viktor Pavel, a Soviet aeronautics genius who escapes his handlers to become the Cold War’s most high-profile defector. Can he be trusted, or was he sent over as part of an elaborate Russian ruse? The truth is more complex than Dodds can imagine. Based on years of experience covering foreign affairs for English newspapers, this is one of the first novels by Brian Freemantle, one of the finest espionage authors of the Cold War.
