Synopsis

Jack Holborn by Leon Garfield

When orphan Jack stows away on the Charming Molly, he never guesses that he'll be sailing off on the adventure of a lifetime with a crew of pirates. There are ghosts, treasure, mutiny, and secrets galore - and looming over everything is the captain, who Jack knows is the only one who can help him discover the truth about his past.

About the Author

Leon Garfield

Leon Garfield was born in Brighton in 1921. His brief art studies were interrupted by the outbreak of World War II, when he joined the army. After the war he worked as a hospital laboratory technician until in the 1960s his literary success enabled him to devote himself completely to writing. He lived with his wife, the children's writer, Vivien Alcock, in Highgate, North London, which has featured in many of his novels.

He was working on a four-hour dramatisation of The Odyssey for BBC Radio when he died on 2nd June 1996.
