Product description


"Before writing the best-selling book that made him known to the world, Hubbard was a prolific writer of pulp fiction, including detective stories, westerns, sf/fantasy, and adventure....After an action-packed opening on stormy seas, this has everything you'd expect, from false accusations to daring escapes to a pretty gal who knows how to take care of herself." —Booklist

"Hubbard was a popular writer of the pulp fiction era, and this short novel, first published in the January 1935 issue of Five Novels magazine, shows why: it features nonstop action and a hero to root for….Though much of the writing is generic, the story moves briskly and maximizes the scenes of gunplay and hand-to-hand combat. Hubbard knew how to fulfill reader expectations for this sort of tale." —Publishers Weekly ---

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.  As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and ’40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
