In January 1742, a warped sailing boat washes up on the coast of Brazil. On board were 30 men, the only survivors of the royal conquest ship THE WAGER, which had been wrecked in a storm. Six months later, three shipwrecked men land on the coast of Chile and claim that the 30 men were mutineers who had disobeyed royal orders and committed ruthless murder.

Who is lying, who is telling the truth? A British court martial is to decide. It's a matter of life or death.

David Grann uses archive material from a historical criminal case to spin a tale as gripping and atmospherically dense as a first-class adventure novel. Guilt and innocence, loyalty and betrayal are closely intertwined, and in the end a shocking truth comes to light.

The Spectator praises: ‘The greatest sea story ever told.’

David Grann, born in 1967, is an award-winning journalist and non-fiction author. His book ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ was made into a film by and with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, who also secured the rights to ‘The Wager’. The book was number one on the New York Times bestseller list for weeks, made it onto Barack Obama's Summer Reading List and, in the German translation by Rudolf Mast, onto the Spiegel bestseller list.
