Publisher's Summary

When torrential summer rains uncover a bizarrely tattooed body on a Lake District hillside, old wives' tales also come swirling to the surface. For centuries Lakelanders have whispered that Fletcher Christian staged the massacre on Pitcairn so that he could return home. And there he told his story to an old friend and schoolmate, William Wordsworth, who turned it into a long narrative poem.

Wordsworth specialist Jane Gresham, herself a native of the Lake District, feels compelled to discover once and for all whether the manuscript ever existed - and whether it still exists today....

    "Good listen"

    This was a good book to dip in and out of the plot being easy to follow but still with some unexpected turns, on the whole good entertainment.

    "Disappointing"

    I was so looking forward to this book as the combination of mystery, literature and history were my area. But it was so long and rambling, I skipped a big chunk of the Middle and jumped to the last 6 chapters. This worked fine, I didn't miss the rest at all! The narration was excellent, I would certainly listen to her readings again.

    "Really enjoyed this yarn"

    Having only recently started reading / listening too books by Val McDermid it makes me wonder what has taken me so long !
    Really good plot on this stand alone ? novel with twists & turns that will make you drive the long way home - not the usual police orientated story line which makes a refreshing change
