Summary

Buried for nearly 300 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.  

John Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realising he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999, when he became a full-time writer. John's hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren.

Critic reviews

"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)

"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)

Half decent but...

Half decent but if you haven't read John drakes prequels about Flint and silver the re telling in my opinion isn't as good as the original however if you have read the prequels it nicely Finnished off the story
