The Barren Islands  (1924) 
by H. Bedford-Jones

Extracted from Blue Book magazine, June 1924, pp. 168–192. [#Trenchard]

That daring adventurer Trenchard whose exciting fortunes you followed in last month’s success “Madagascar Gold” is also the central figure in this new story of sudden hazard and swift action in far ports and seas. And you'll find this sequel even more interesting than its predecessor.


A complete novelette by
H. Bedford-Jones

The Brazen Peacock,” “Cactus and Rattlers,” “The Second Life of M. the Devil” and many other fine stories have well demonstrated Mr. Bedford-Jones’ extraordinary gift for fast-moving fiction. But never have his talents showed to more enjoyable advantage than in this absorbing novelette.
