Customer Review

on 15 April 2013
A lack of women and drink was what finally did for the men who supported Christian Fletcher after they had forced Captain Bligh off "The Bounty" and left him and his loyal colleagues to die on a raft. Landing on a beautiful islet near Tahiti, they had everything they needed to live on the small paradise - except a clean conscience and a lack of fear. Nightmares that they would one day be found and taken back to be tried and hung in England plagued the survivors who turned on each other. When Christian Fletcher died they lost their natural leader. And they fought over women - the gorgeous Tahitians who had accompanied them to the island - and turned against each other when they had too much drink or not enough of it. As Tony Parsons explores the vehicle of the historical novel, he takes his abiding themes with him - the struggle of men to be decent, their battles with fear and their desperate love of women.
