The Mary Celeste (1979)

When Captain Morehouse first sighted the Mary Celeste, he assumed it was calling for help. But the fluttering he took for a distress signal was a tattered sail, the wheel was unmanned, and the master, his wife, their two year old daughter and the entire crew had disappeared. Attorney – General Frederick Solly Flood can see only one possible cause- mutiny and murder. He forces his agenda onto the official inquiry, transforming it into a criminal prosecution… Brian freemantle tells of Flood’s blind obsession and offers a compelling new explanation of what really happened aboard the Mary Celeste.
