Book Description

All is not well on Zanatu: the idyllic Polynesian island is in rebellion, and the British Navy sends Lieutenant St Vincent Halfhyde to find out why. Halfhyde steams to investigate, braving typhoons and coral reefs along the way. But things go from bad to worse once he steps foot on the island, as angry natives armed with guns assault the British sailors. The natives swear allegiance to a mysterious god named John Frumm, who has appeared among them, promising wealth and prosperity. As the island slides toward anarchy, Halfhyde struggles to rescue the beleaguered members of Her Majesty's Colonial Service and find the elusive Frumm before it is too late.

Synopsis

All is not well on Zanatu. The idyllic Polynesian island is in rebellion and the British Navy sends Lieutenant St. Vincent Halfhyde to find out why. Halfhyde steams to investigate, braving typhoons and coral reefs along the way but things go from bad to worse once he steps foot on the island, as angry natives armed with guns assault the British sailors. The natives swear allegiance to a mysterious god named John Frumm, who has appeared among them, promising wealth and prosperity. As the island slides toward anarchy, Halfhyde struggles to rescue the beleaguered members of Her Majesty's Colonial Service and find the elusive Frumm before it is too late. Then Russian Admiral Prince Gorsinski shows up and the stakes soar even higher: Halfhyde must outwit his old nemesis to save the people of Zanatu and the trade routes of the Empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halfhyde in the South Pacific 16 April 2009
By Hugh S. Somsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We find Halfhyde in the South Pacific fighting off the devilish Russians (so worldwide designs haven't just been in modern Russia?) who want to expand their colonies and sphere of influence. Can that be Capt. Watkiss masquerading in John Frumm drag? A fun story to read.
