From the ORANGE PRIZE-winning author, an enthralling novel about the enduring mystery of the Mary Celeste, an infamous mystic and Arthur Conan Doyle.

A mystery unsolved to this day
A mystic who confounds the cynics
A writer looking for the story that will make his name
A ghost ship appears in the mist. To the struggling author Arthur Conan Doyle, it is an inspiration. To Violet Petra, the gifted American psychic, it is a cruel reminder. To the death-obsessed Victorian public, it is a fascinating distraction. And to one family, tied to the sea for generations, it is a tragedy.

In salons and on rough seas, at seances and in the imagination of a genius, these stories converge in unexpected ways as the mystery of the ghost ship deepens. But will the sea yield its secrets, and to whom?
