Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Pickpocket John Jacob Turnstile is on his way to be detained at His Majesty's Pleasure when he is offered a lifeline, what seems like a freedom of sorts - the job of personal valet to a departing naval captain. Little does he realise that it is anything but - and by accepting the devil's bargain he will put his life in perilous danger. For the ship is HMS Bounty, his new captain William Bligh and their destination Tahiti.

From the moment the ship leaves port, Turnstile's life is turned upside down, for not only must he put his own demons to rest, but he must also confront the many adversaries he will encounter on the Bounty's extraordinary last voyage. Walking a dangerous line between an unhappy crew and a captain he comes to admire, he finds himself in a no-man's land where the distinction between friend and foe is increasingly difficult to determine....

A popular story retold brilliantly and originally.

At first look this is retelling of a familiar story. Bligh’s reputation has been reassessed more positively in recent years but the book doesn’t settle for easy comparison between him and Fletcher Christian, instead focussing on the fictional servant of Cpt Bligh. It’s an engaging and fascinating story and In Boyne’s hands even the scenes set adrift in a boat is full of beautifully observed moments. A joy.

Utterly absorbing

Piers Hampton - my new absolute favourite narrator, this was an absolutely fantastic adaptation of mutiny on the bounty was enhanced even further still by such fantastic narration by Piers Hampton. I’m gutted it’s finished & fully intend to listen again.
