AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When consignments of gold keep disappearing in the South Seas, Clipper and Brown are called upon to do something about it. As the famous sleuths pit their dumb wits against the brains of a pirate gang, they find that the congenial Pacific Islands hold more than strumming guitars and Polynesian beauties. Indeed, they almost get inside information on the cannibal question. However, all's well that ends in victory.
