Publisher's Summary

Dead Man's Chest, written as a sequel to Treasure Island, begins with Long John Silver's escape from the merchantman ship Hispaniola at Puerta Plata and culminates with the American Revolution more than a decade later. It describes in rich detail the unholy alliance between this softhearted cutthroat, his teenage nephew, David Noble, and Captain John Paul Jones. Together, they work to retrieve a king's ransom of Spanish gold and jewels from a dead man's chest.

Critic Reviews

"Roger Cosham demonstrates his narrative versatility with deft changes of tone and inflection, and pacing that keeps the lengthy book from becoming tedious. Fans of naval stories should love Johnson's book, which honors Stevenson's classic." (AudioFile)

Interesting story. Great narration.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Man's Chest to be better than the print version?

I loved the narrator and the way he brought each character to life. I especially loved the Scottish brogue.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the character of John Paul Jones.

Pirate Tale

Supposed to be related to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure island. Perhaps. I think it is better, than Treasure Island.
More of a fictional account of young John Paul Jones, before he became famous, than anything else.
Left me wanting to hear the rest of the story.
