The following content was provided by the publisher.
When he learns that his partner's been murdered attempting to gather gold worth half a million dollars, Tom Christian sets off to the jungles of the Solomon Islands to retrace his partner's footsteps and finish the job. But Tom's gold fever makes him unaware that the notorious thief Punjo Charlie has laid a trap to snare the young man and collect the treasure himself.


Christian's problems soon triple when a trio of Americans are taken hostage by the same bandit--and one of those hostages just happens to be the beautiful Diana Forsythe.


What follows is an all-out war which pits Christian, his first mate Hihi and their contingent of coast men against a horde of bloodthirsty headhunters, all under the control of the man who killed his partner.

About the author

L. Ron Hubbard was born in Tilden, Nebraska on March 13, 1911. He attended George Washington University and Princeton University.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-05-15)

This title was originally published in the August 1936 issue of Five-Novels Monthly and combines two thematic elements common to Hubbard's adventure fiction: headhunters and gold mining. It opens with American Tom Christian setting off for the jungles of the Solomon Islands in search of the gold that cost the life of his partner. When Christian's defenses are weakened by gold fever, he finds a savior and sidekick in Hihi, a Polynesian native who joins him on his journey.

With arrows and spears whizzing by and gunshots ricocheting off trees, listeners will feel as though they are navigating the perilous jungle alongside the duo. Notable are the appearances by jiggly-eyed thief Punjo Charlie, whose foreboding way of speaking Hihi's name in the context of threatening his life-a curled, drawn out "Eeee-hee"-is spine-chilling. R.F. Daley narrates while Thomas Silcott, Jim Meskimen, Max Williams, Josh Robert Thompson, Brooke Bloom, and Fred Tatasciore voice the nine-character cast. Definitely one of Hubbard's more successful adventures; strongly -recommended.
