Retired Commander Roger L. Johnson's DEAD MAN’S CHEST picks up where Robert Louis Stevenson's classic, TREASURE ISLAND, ends, and never looks back. With its more mature themes, the book is not a children's story, but adult readers will enjoy the entertaining plot twists, including the filling in of details in the lives of Captain John Paul Jones and the notorious pirate, Long John Silver. Roger Cosham demonstrates his narrative versatility with deft changes of tone and inflection, and pacing that keeps the lengthy book from becoming tedious. Fans of naval stories should love Johnson's book, which honors Stevenson's classic. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
