Synopsis

Beyond the Bounty (Quick Reads) by Tony Parsons

Even Paradise can turn into a nightmare ...The Mutiny on the Bounty is the most famous uprising in naval history. Led by Fletcher Christian, a desperate crew cast sadistic Captain Bligh adrift. They swap cruelty and the lash for easy living in the island heaven of Tahiti. However, paradise turns out to have a darker side ...Mr Christian dies in terrible agony. The Bounty burns. Cursed by murder and treachery, the rebels' dreams turn to nightmares, and all hope of seeing England again is lost forever. A story of low treachery and high adventure, murder under the palm trees, trouble in paradise and a lost Eden in the South Seas.
