Mutiny's Curse begins where Mutiny On the Bounty left off! "If you go through with this thing, Christian," said Captain Bligh at last, his voice cold and low and penetrating, "may God damn your soul!" History records that on April 28, 1789, Fletcher Christian led a mutiny of the crew of the H.M.S. Bounty. Captain William Bligh and seventeen other men were put aboard a 16-foot rowboat south of the island of Tofoa in the South Pacific. Afraid of stories and legends of cannibalism and human sacrifice among islanders in this part of the Pacific, Bligh and his men began a journey of more than 4,000 miles that ultimately led them back to England. And what became of Christian? It is equally well known to historians that he and his crew settled on Pitcairn Island, where descendents of the Bounty still live more than two centuries later. What isn't as well known is that historical records indicate that Fletcher Christian escaped Pitcairn and also returned to England. His journeys bring him to the end of himself, where he must decide who will be captain of his soul. In the grand tradition of Mutiny on the Bounty, Dan Thrapp weaves together historical fact with brilliant imagination to create a modern classic that portrays a man who does not believe he can ever escape the curse of the Captain he betrayed-nor his own sin against God.
