Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall "Therfe was gold in the New Guinea hills, but the island-hopping detecting duo of Bertram Lynch and Robert Deane hadn't come to Papua for all that glitters--they were prospecting for murder. Lynch, an unorthodox British special agent, and Deane, an American professor of history, responded to an urgent summons from the Governor General of Papua, New Guinea. Four experienced explorers had unaccountably vanished in the gold-rich Murray Range. Rumors were spreading through the Stone Age tribes of the New Guinea uplands about mysterious aircraft travelling in and out of the interior. To the governor General, it all pointed to trouble ahead-and trouble was just what Lynch and Deane found when they set off up-country to unravel the mystery. Before they finished, they uncovered a problem replete with international intrigue, deserted native villages, primitive weapons, and a treasure worth more than gold. John W. Vandercook weaves the excitement of today's headlines into a tautly-written, suspenseful tale that will win new admirers for the engaging Messrs. Lynch and Deane." 218 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; slight discoloration to text pages. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition.
