Not much detective work, but plenty of amiable hokum about Phil Nevitt, a young New Englander working for a rum company after Prohibition who is sent to a Caribbean island to investigate a rival outfit. Annunziata may be small but it has everything -- sun, sand, a mountainous interior, a Creole aristocracy, cheerful negroes who chatter away in broken English, and a club for the dissolute whites who run the place, including the U.S. Administrator, Randal Trantor. Trantor is a rich drunk: his Creole offsider Bareda manages his many commercial enterprises, including the distillery. -- http://gadetection.pbworks.com [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
