Ten years after the Hispaniola sailed away from Treasure Island with her cargo of gold, Jim Hawkins, now a young man, is landlord of the Admiral Benbow. Into his comfortable, uneventful life comes a mysterious young woman with a child, urgently seeking his help - and Jim finds himself once more on the Hispaniola , sailing back to the 'accursed island' he swore never to set foot on again. Violence, murder, and the quest for treasure make for a cliffhanging adventure revolving round the enigmatic figure of Grace Richardson. In this gripping, powerful sequel to one of the best-loved books of all time, Francis Bryan reintroduces all our favourite characters: Squire Trelawney, Dr Livesey, Ben Gunn and best of all Long John Silver, who is lured from retirement to climb the heights of Spy-Glass Hill with Jim. With the spare, vivid language and the same swashbuckling pace as Robert Louis Stevenson, he tells the story in Jim Hawkins' own words. The book is a tour de force that will appeal to all those who have read and loved Treasure Island.
