Buckle up for adventure in this action-packed tale. 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. "Definitely one of Hubbard’s more successful adventures; strongly recommended." -Library Journal Starred Review
