Book Synopsis

After optimistically traveling to Australia to participate in the gold rush, Cole decides to return home when his efforts prove to be unsuccessful. Disappointed, Cole boards the same ship he sailed to Australia on, feeling cheated that not much had changed in his life. However, as the voyage home stretches on, it seems patience is all Cole needed. When he first met Eva Denison, a young woman being escorted back to London by her step father, Cole thought little of her. Though, as the two start to talk more and grow closer, a romance blossoms between the two. Unfortunately, the pair are given little chance to explore it when they discover that the ship harbored a dangerous secret. When a tragic accident leaves Cole as seemingly the sole survivor, he returns to London, shaken and ready to put that chapter of his life behind him. But when suspicions start to form about the incident, Cole realizes that his survival was all part of a complex and dubious plot. With complex characters and descriptive prose, Dead Men Tell No Tales by E.W Hornung is a thrilling and suspenseful narrative. First published in 1898, Dead Men Tell No Tales depicts a voyage that Hornung himself was familiar with. Though the plot is dramatized, this adventurous novel provides an engaging and enlightening depiction of the early 20th century through vivid details of the setting, characters, and social customs. This edition of Dead Men Tell No Tales by E.W Hornung now features a new, eye-catching cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of Dead Men Tell No Tales crafts an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original drama and suspense of E.W Hornung's work.
