Mary Celeste is an iconic mystery - a perfectly seaworthy ship found wandering aimlessly at sea, her crew strangely and inexplicably missing.
Paul Begg tells the story of the discovery of Mary Celeste and the people who vanished, and investigates over a century's worth of speculation and survivors' tales, searching for the facts behind one of the world's great mysteries.
Paul Begg is the author of Jack the Ripper: The Definitive History (Longman 2004) and two other highly respected books about Jack the Ripper. He is also the author of Into Thin Air (1981), which included a chapter about the Mary Celeste and wrote extensively for The Unexplained, a part-work to which he contributed an article about Mary Celeste. He has appeared on a Channel 5 documentary about the discovery of the mystery ship's wreckage.
