Batavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny
Why this book?
Australia’s most famous and murderous event in history involving a shipwreck, a mutinous and bloodthirsty crew, an incompetent captain, and a story that defies belief. I stumbled across this book and almost didn’t read it because it was way out of my comfort zone, but it was a truly compelling (and disturbing) read. So much so that I wrote a sequel and published it as an e-book! This story will haunt your dreams.
