  • "Three men stranded in the 1890's South Pacific agree to crew a ship but then decide to steal the cargo. After they meet another Englishman, a fanatical and despotic self-proclaimed island ruler, their moral disintegration continues."@en
  • "It is Tahiti in the 1890's and three men, an American sea captain, an English gentleman and a cockney thief, are 'on the beach'. Dispossessed and destitute, the 'trio' agree to sail a smallpox-infected ship loaded with champagne to Sydney, Australia, plotting to steal the cargo, scupper the vessel, and head for the 'Dangerous Archipelago'. Predictably, the thieves fall out. They lose their course and are driven towards an uncharted island which flies the red ensign. The owner of the island, also an English gentleman, has amassed a fortune in pearls. He is both a stern disciplinarian and a religious megalomaniac. As the protagonists in this 'quartette' begin to play out their parts, the plot moves to its dramatic, but ambiguous, conclusion. Stevenson's tale of exploitation in the South Seas recreates both the period and the place through a brilliant exploration of the moral corruption of colonisation."@en
  • "The cynical Attwater, the desparate shipper, the villainous little Cockney and the man of education gone to the dogs but clinging to his sense of honour, form the quartette."@en
  • "Published in 1894, the year of Stevenson's death, this novel tells of three unscrupulous men entrusted to deliver a cargo of champagne aboard a ship whose crew has died of smallpox. The three embark on a drunken voyage, only to discover an island whose sole European inhabitant, Attwater, has amassed a fortune in pearls."@en
