Mckinnon, the wireless operator of the Laminian, gets entangled in the nets of a gun-runner who plans to take over a banana republic.

"You are equipped with wireless.... Can't you understand? The Guariqui station is not one of high power. It can't possibly call beyond the coast. Yet the cruiser is to be lying somewhere between Culebra and Locombia, waiting to help, only too anxious to interfere at the first official call. But that call can never reach them without being relayed from the roadstead, out across the Caribbean. You may be the only person who can hear and understand Guariqui's cry for help."
