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.

Reviews

"A master of adventure."
--Anne McCaffrey
"Also, about halfway through the story there's a right-angle plot twist that would make Jeffrey Deaver proud, very effectively lulling readers in a false sense of security before shocking the heck out of them. A first-rate adventure yarn." --Booklist

"A master of adventure." --Anne McCaffrey
"A master of adventure." Anne McCaffrey"
"Two escaped convicts, Paco Corvino and Lars Marlin, face off in Hubbard s fast-paced high seas action yarn, first published in the November 1937 issue of "Argosy." Some years after Corvino andMarlin independently broke out of French Guiana s Devil s Island, the men meet by chance in Rio de Janeiro, where the debonair Corvino works as the steward of the "Valiant, " a luxury yacht due to set sail. Corvino persuades the "Valiant s "captain to hire Marlin, who s an experienced skipper, as part of the crew, unaware that Marlin blames his hellish stint on Devil s Island on his fellow escapee. Itching to take Corvino out with his trusty .38, Marlin, must bide his time as the equally dangerous Corvino fingers his knife. Contraband cargo (heroin) and the yacht owner s beautiful daughter add spice to this taut pulp melodrama." Publishers Weekly"
