    A classic!

    For this 1936 submission to "Thrilling Adventures" magazine, L. Ron Hubbard wisely chose a first person narrative to recount the adventures of Captain Humbert Reynolds. The authoritative first person voice is handled with Hubbard's uncanny skill. Here is a writer who can set the scene, introduce characters, and elevate the suspense level with but a few strokes of his typewriter. And as usual the pacing is relentless. From the first paragraph Humbert Reynolds makes it clear he went through hell. His tribulations nearly cost him his life and he will forever be a changed man because of his experiences. Gold fever propels Reynolds to the Gobi desert where he's captured by bandits and sentenced to a short life as a slave in the gold mines beneath the treacherous mountains. Gritty, brutal and unforgiving, Hubbard paints a portrait of a man driven by greed who learns all too quickly how merciless can be life. For Humbert Reynolds it will take all of his determination to survive a captivity in this golden hell. This edition also includes the short story "The Pearl Pirate" which should thrill fans of these classic hardboiled pulp stories. Highly recommended!
