Hurricane (Stories from the Golden Age) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Great Escape and Papillon, Steve McQueen embodied the tough guy on the run from captivity and injustice. But when it comes to toughness, McQueen is following in the daring and determined footsteps of Captain Spar.

Wrongfully accused, Spar has been condemned to suffer the brutality of the guards and the conditions on Devil’s Island. But they haven’t broken his will, and now, escaping, he has one mission in life: revenge. Spar’s out to kill the man who put him into the devil’s hands. But he’ll have to take on a gallery of rogues who are as treacherous as the waters of the Caribbean.

Pressure is rising and a storm is brewing. But even in the face of a natural disaster, Spar discovers that nothing is more volatile than human nature—as temptation and danger are about to collide with Hurricane force.

In 1937 L. Ron Hubbard wrote to one of his editors: “You might have noticed that I am intensely wary of becoming any kind of a story specialist. I have sold the gamut of types: air war, air, western, detective, love, terror. . . . My one passion is to build a name for variety. . . . I like my freedom. I fight hard for independent individualism. I love to tie into a yarn and make it blaze in print.” Hubbard’s passion for writing, creativity and individualism certainly blazes across the page in stories like Hurricane.

“The excitement is made even more thrilling through the superb production Galaxy Audio puts behind these audiobooks. Excellent voice acting, sound effects that keep the story thrilling, and incidental music that makes you feel as though you are in an old time radio drama.” —Gather.com

Synopsis:

Captain Spar is wrongfully imprisoned on Devil’s Island but makes a daring escape to the small island of Martinique—hot on the trail of the man who framed him, his nemesis, the infamous Saint.

Synopsis:

Experience the suspense. Wrongfully imprisoned on Devil's Island, Captain Spar dreams of killing the one man who contrived his capture on that island hell. When he daringly escapes from the penal colony, Spar lands on the island of Martinique, hot on the trail of his nemesis.

But Spar quickly finds himself ensnared by the deadly schemes of a brutal and cold-blooded native known only as Chacktar while attempting to discover the identity of his betrayer. He is forced to sail the yacht Venture through a vicious storm toward the rocky shores of Hurricane Hill, an island whose surrounding waters are the most treacherous in the Caribbean.

It is an assignment Captain Spar cannot refuse, one where he must try to save not only himself but an entire boatload of innocents that includes one very alluring young woman. "This is an excellent example of American pulp fiction of the 1930s-40s, complete with garish red cover and illustration of damsel in distress with plunging neckline.” —AudioFile

Synopsis:

Here’s your ticket for a cruise to the Caribbean—with danger at every turn—as the audio version of Hurricane sweeps you away. “The entertaining story is vividly recreated.” —Booklist

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
