#1  Pulpmeister 12-14-2018, 02:09 AM
Traditional adventure novel, featuring Terence O'Rourke, two-fisted, two-gunned gentleman adventurer.

O'Rourke, who came into possession of a wonderful Asian ruby called The Pool of Flame, and has stashed it away, is offered a large sum of money to return it to the forehead of the statue of Buddha from which it was stolen long long ago. O'Rourke is in Monte Carlo; the Pool of Flame is in Algeria; and the statue is in the northeast of Burma, in the Shan states near the Chinese border.

O'Rourke, who is broke and needs the money, sets out on the quest, and is of course beset by perils, including those who wish to steal the Pool of Flame from him...

(Oddly, of the four illustrations in the hardback, one (the frontispiece) is missing from my source; and the other three all illustrate events in Chapter 26. I have put those three pics where they fit, rather than where they were located in the book.)
