The word "mutiny" brings to mind swashbuckling excitement and thoughts of adventure on the grand seas. Even today, people welcome thoughts
of mutiny, longing to cast off the chains of corporate life and strike off for adventure. In 1825, however, mutiny held an entirely different meaning. Mutiny was an unthinkable act with horrifying consequences for those
who followed through with the idea.
Gregory Gibson skillfully resurrects a long-forgotten piece of naval history. Demon of the Waters tells the story of the hunt for the Globe Mutineers. Based on
the long-lost journal of a young office dispatched to apprehend the perpetrators of the mutiny, the story is filled with rich detail and horrifying accuracy. The old adage
that truth is stranger than fiction comes to mind when reading this story with all of its twists and turns.
You have to read things twice to make sure you read it right.
Demon of the Waters makes readers feel like they were
actually there when everything was happening. The writing is neither too dry nor overly theatrical. There
is a rolling simplicity to the story that encourages completing this book within hours,
and it tells a fantastic story for lovers of historical fiction. Get your money together and buy this one quick: you’ll love it, too.
