KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the classic mysteries of the sea, this tale of the discovery of the derelict with no human aboard, and no evidence to point to the why and how of the disappearance of captain and crew, the desertion of a ship apparently unharmed. The story has supplied a theme of endless conjecture, -- Conan Doyle, Masefield, Howard Pease and others have used it. This book does for the ""Mary Celeste"" what Nordhoff and Hall did for the story of the ""Bounty"" -- judiciously blending fact and fiction in a complete investigation that entertains supremely well, while leaving the reader, at the end, still in a fog of conjecture.
