On the first voyage, she ventured further south than any human had ever been. On the second, she vanished with her 129-strong crew in the wastes of the Canadian Arctic.

Her fate remained a mystery for over 160 years. Then, in 2014, she was found.

This is her story.

Praise for The Sunday Times Bestseller, and BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week: 

"Thoroughly absorbs the reader. . . Carefully researched and well-crafted, it brings the story of a ship vividly to life.’ Sunday Times

‘A great story . . . Told in a very relaxed and sometimes – as you might expect – very funny Palin style.’ David Baddiel, Daily Mail

‘Magisterial . . . Brings energy, wit and humanity to a story that has never ceased to tantalise people since the 1840s.’ The Times
