'Stay close, Bartlett whispered. Gozo rolled his eyes. What did Bartlett think he was going to do? The bird calls and rustling continued all around them. Branches swayed, shadows wavered. Was that a person flitting past them over there? Or there? Or there? When Bartlett, Gozo and Jacques le Grand arrive on an island far off in the ocean, they have no idea what they ll find. Awaiting them are four kings, a towering volcano, and a strange, shadowy man who appears in a flash of light and disappears in a cloud of smoke. And underlying everything is a dark secret that no one will reveal. As the volcano comes to life, the three explorers must use all their legendary Inventiveness, Desperation and Perseverance and all the help they can get to uncover the truth and find their way home. Another gripping Bartlett adventure from Odo Hirsch.' (Publication summary)
