Synopsis

The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller

‘Mosse is a master storyteller’ – Madeline Miller, bestselling author of Circe


A swashbuckling story of piracy. A dangerous escape from persecution. And a secret romance between two lovers — neither of whom are quite what they seem. From number one bestselling author Kate Mosse, The Ghost Ship is the third volume in the enthralling and epic series, The Joubert Family Chronicles.

The Barbary Coast, 1621. A mysterious vessel floats silently on the water — its hull splintered and its sails tattered and burnt. For months the Ghost Ship has hunted pirates to liberate enslaved prisoners. Now it, too, finds itself hunted.

But the ship’s crew hides a secret, and the stakes could not be higher. The bravest among them are not what they seem: if arrested, they will hang for their alleged crimes. Can they survive their journey and escape their fate?

A sweeping and epic love story, The Ghost Ship is a tale of adventure and buccaneering, love and revenge, stolen fortunes, piracy and hidden secrets on the high seas.

Another meticulously researched and stunningly written novel by a much-loved and highly accomplished author. I adored it!
Beautifully written and engaging from the first page, keeping you guessing until the end
The Ghost Ship is utterly absorbing. I couldn’t put it down and fell in love with her two main characters, and felt bereft when it ended
