McDermid, Val, 1955-2006
Books
Summer in the Lake District. Torrential rain uncovers a bizarrely tattooed body on a hillside, and tales involving the legendary Pitcairn Massacre are being told again. Did Fletcher Christian, mutinous First Mate on the BOUNTY, fake his own death in order to return home in secret? Wordsworth scholar Jane Gresham wants to know the truth. There are rumours that the poet, a friend of Christian's, harboured the fugitive and turned his tale into an epic poem - a narrative that has since remained hidden. But as she follows each new lead, death follows hard on her heels. Suddenly, a 200-year-old mystery is putting lives on the line, and a drama of life and death plays out - its ultimate prize a bounty worth millions.
