The best steel goes through the fire: Joseph Seabold hates the family business. But his aging cousin—running the Seabold Fruit Company—sees the young man as his successor. To test his mettle, he sends Seabold south of the border to the Republic of San Esteban where the company has a hand in the local politics to keep the company running. But revolution is brewing: the Republic is a powder keg about to explode! A naive mistake brands Seabold an enemy of the state and he has no choice but to join the revolution to overthrow the government. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of gritty battles, cold betrayals, steamy romance and heartless double crosses as only Frederick Faust can deliver.
This riveting tale has never been reprinted and appears in book form for the first time. Frederick Faust fans rejoice! This long neglected classic is back for a new audience to devour. This is Faust at his best.
