This early work by H. C. McNeile was originally published in 1931 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. ‘The Island of Terror’ is a novel that includes McNeile’s “footloose sahib of the period” character, Jim Maitland.
But when Jim Maitland was apparently doing something the betting was largely in favour of the fact that in reality he was doing something else.
When intrepid adventurer, Jim Maitland, returns to England for a brief visit, he meets a charming young woman named Judy Draycott, who solicits his help in a perilous matter. She relates the story of her brother, Arthur – drifting in South America until he meets an old sailor who, on his deathbed, tells him about a hoard of buried treasure. When Arthur is shot during an attempt to return to London, Maitland persuades his cousin, Percy, to accompany him to Lone Tree Island, where the treasure is allegedly buried. But what can they do with only half a map? And can they evade the undesirables on their trail?
