Summary

This vintage book contains Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1892 novel, "The Wrecker". It is a 'sprawling, episodic adventure story, a comedy of brash manners and something of a detective mystery' that centres round the abandoned wreck of the 'Flying Stud' at Midway Island. The gripping mystery is solved using strange clues hidden inside a stamp collection. A fantastic example of Stevenson’s masterful style, "The Wrecker" is highly recommended for lovers of exciting mystery fiction. Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850 - 1894) was a famous Scottish essayist, novelist, poet, and travel writer. Some of his best known works include "Treasure Island" and "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
