Summary

In the middle of the South Seas is the island of Motugra, so named by the natives. It has the only deep water port in this island chain. On Motugra you'll find The Hanging Monkey, an inn and bar owned and operated by Irish ex-patriot Corky O'Brien. Here gather some of the most colorful rogues, scalawags, and pirates ever to ply the trade routes of the Pacific during the late 1930s. Enter and meet Khuna, the bar's bouncer and former headhunter. Miko, the slim and beautiful Chinese girl with the mysterious past. One-eyed Captain Nick Fortune, owner of the schooner Fortune's Folly. And air-freight pilot, Jimmy Dolan. And don't forget ace reporter, the lovely blonde Grace Thomas. All of these characters spring from the mind of writer Bill Craig as homage to the classic pulp island stories of yesterday. Along for the ride, Craig is joined by Derrick Ferguson, Joshua Reynolds, and Tommy Hancock. Here are four fast-paced island adventures guaranteed to whisk your imagination to tropical paradises of warm breezes, swaying palm trees and crystal blue waters, where danger can lurk behind the smile of an alluring native girl and a man's fists are as important as his wits. So hitch up your gun belt, cock your pilot's cap, and swing the door's open. Welcome to The Hanging Monkey!
