About the book

'A master storyteller' ― Madeleine Miller, bestselling author of Circe

A sweeping and epic story of adventure and hardship, injustice and triumph, 
The Map of Bones by Kate Mosse is the sequel to the No. 1 bestselling The Ghost Ship, and the fourth ― and final ― novel of The Joubert Family Chronicles.

Olifantshoek, 1688.
 When the violent Cape wind blows from the south-east, they say the voices of the unquiet dead can be heard whispering through the deserted valley. Suzanne Joubert, a Huguenot refugee from war-torn France, is here to walk in her cousin’s footsteps. Louise Reydon-Joubert, the notorious she-captain and pirate commander, landed at the Cape of Good Hope more than sixty years ago, then disappeared from the record as if she had never existed. Suzanne has come to find her ― to lay the stories to rest. But all is not as it seems . . .

Franschhoek, 1862. Nearly one hundred and eighty years after Suzanne’s perilous journey, another intrepid and courageous woman of the Joubert family ― Isabelle Lepard ― has journeyed to the small frontier town once known as Oliftantshoek in search of her long-lost relations. A journalist and travel writer, intent on putting the women of her family back into the history books, she quickly discovers that the tragedies and crimes of the past are far from over. Isabelle faces a race against time if she is not only going to discover the truth but escape with her life . . .
