The Yankee Must Die: Huaka'i Po Summary

August of 1883, the volcano Krakatoa erupted with terrifying violence and caused a catastrophe few survived - lucky Tom Turner was one of those few. A Civil War veteran, intelligencer, and former first mate aboard Robur the Conqueror's magnificent airship, the Albatross, Turner was a reluctant Devil. Having escaped the destruction of Krakatoa should have been enough adventure. But not for Turner. Now he'll have to confront the consequences of his past and those who want the secrets he alone holds. Murderous pirates, ruthless French scientists, erupting Hawaiian volcanoes, and the deadly Huaka'i po (the Nightmarchers) all stand between Turner and home.

No man can be that lucky?

The Volcano Lady, Volumes I and II, told only part of Tom Turner's story. Now The Yankee Must Die - Gaslight Adventures of Tom Turner (in three novellas) reveals the rest of his adventures. Can he escape his past or will he die at the hands of bio-mechanical assassins? Turner dreams of the day he might be reunited with the only woman to captivate his heart - Victorian volcanologist Lettie Gantry - if only he can survive again and again, against all chances. But this is lucky Tom Turner.

This is T.E. MacArthur's latest installment from the Volcano Lady universe: an exciting blend of historical fact and steam-powered fiction - plus a healthy dose of Jules Verne himself.

    There's something nasty lurking in the thick fog of San Francisco, roaring in the dark, waiting to be unleashed. Leave it to lucky Tom Turner to have to find out, but first he must evade being shanghaied in the Barbary Coast, destroyed by the murderous ambitions of former Confederate "gentlemen", or punished as a consequence of his own past. Mechanical monstrosities show up on every gas lit street corner and in every suspicious warehouse, threatening the very fabric of his country.
