       Additional Information  
      A superb psychological thriller in which present-day murder has its roots in the eighteenth century and the mutiny on The Bounty Imagine an undiscovered manuscript by William Wordsworth. Imagine that manuscript relates to an unknown version of the mutiny on The Bounty in the words of Fletcher Christian. Imagine what it would be worth, and what passions it would stir There is a strong rumour in the Lake District that, contrary to popular belief, Fletcher Christian was not murdered on Pitcairn Island in 1793. Instead, he secretly returned to his native Cumbria. But the desire to tell his story burned bright inside him. And who better to entrust it to than his old schoolmate, the famous writer William Wordsworth? The manuscript has remained hidden for generations, its significance unknown. Until now. Graduate student Matthew Kendal's inquiries stir up long-forgotten memories. And before long, murder stalks the manuscript as ruthlessly as a hidden killer.
