Adventure lies in the East, and Mr. Parkman has made good use of his opportunities. James Carfax, tired of the Italian bout on which he has been second mate, decides to seek another job. He picks up a suspiciously good one on a private yacht, and finds himself among a mixed gang with a still more mixed motive, which turns out to be pearl-poaching on an island in the Pacific, owned by France. His refusal to, have anything to do with the poachers does not preclude him from participating in a most exciting adventure,
in which romance plays its part.
– a review from The Mercury, Hobart, Tasmania, 1931.
