The Traitor of Treasure Island
By John Drake
‘If anyone ever makes another film of Treasure Island, the producers should hire John Drake to write the script.’ – Historical Novel Society
“Simply an excellent book…The authenticity is palpable, the story engrossing, the characters completely human. Of the many spin-offs that Treasure Island has inspired over the years, this one truly stands out.” – James L. Nelson, author of The Only Life that Mattered and Fin Gall
Buried for nearly three hundred years and now brought triumphantly to light by Dr Livesey, this is, at last, the true story of what happened on the fateful Treasure Island…
The truth about Captain Flint and his fabled death.
The truth about Long John Silver and his coveted wife.
And the truth about Jim Hawkins, that double-dealing turncoat of the first order: The traitor of Treasure Island.
‘A novel and refreshing take on a classic…instantly captivating with a well-crafted plot that definitely keeps the pages turning.’ – Alaric Bond, author of the Fighting Sail series.
