The Ghost of the Mary Celeste, Paperback


A mystery unsolved to this day A mystic who confounds the cynics A writer looking for the story that will make his name A ghost ship appears in the mist.

To the struggling author Arthur Conan Doyle, it is an inspiration.

To Violet Petra, the gifted American psychic, it is a cruel reminder.

To the death-obsessed Victorian public, it is a fascinating distraction. And to one family, tied to the sea for generations, it is a tragedy. In salons and on rough seas, at seances and in the imagination of a genius, these stories converge in unexpected ways as the mystery of the ghost ship deepens.

But will the sea yield its secrets, and to whom?
