Halfhyde on Zanatu Book 9:The Halfhyde Adventures

All is not well on Zanatu. The idyllic Polynesian island is in rebellion and the British Navy sends Lieutenant St Vincent Halfhyde to find out why. Halfhyde steams to investigate, braving typhoons and coral reefs along the way. But things go from bad to worse once he steps foot on the island, as angry natives armed with guns assault the British sailors. The natives swear allegiance to a mysterious god named John Frumm, who has appeared among them, promising wealth and prosperity. As the island slides toward anarchy, Halfhyde struggles to rescue the beleaguered members of Her Majesty's Colonial Service and find the elusive Frumm before it is too late. Then Russian Admiral Prince Gorsinski shows up and the stakes soar even higher: Halfhyde must outwit his old nemesis to save the people of Zanatu and the trade routes of the Empire.
