Best known for rip-roaring adventure tales such as Kidnapped, Treasure Island, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson penned the novella The Ebb-Tide in collaboration with his stepson, Lloyd Osbourne. Regarded by critics as a sharp rebuke of British imperialism, the plot revolves around three transients who board a ship that they think is carrying a large quantity of champagne, only to find that their attempted heist has backfired in the worst way imaginable.
