Publisher's Summary

July, 1802: In the marshy eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives with a request from her father, Long John Silver. The pirate proposes that Young Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint's hidden bounty, left behind many years before....
Featuring a cast of noble seamen; murderous pirates; and stories of love, valor, and terrible cruelty, Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island- and a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England's greatest writers.
David Tennant is best known for his role as the tenth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who, along with the title role in the 2005 TV serial Casanova and as Barty Crouch, Jr. in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He has also appeared in many stage productions including the title role in the acclaimed RSC production of Hamlet.


What the Critics Say

“The first thing to be said about Silver is that from the opening pages it is clear that it is no slap-dash clashing-in exercise, but a piece of writing born of genuine love and respect for the original.” (Sunday Times)
“Silver whips along like a tea clipper in a fair breeze….” (Sunday Express)
“I think [Stevenson] would approve of this rich and thrilling narrative which so ingeniously complements his own.” (Independent on Sunday)
