"On the boat to Panama, where he is going to join his uncle, a famous detective, Hal Keen discovers an old school chum who is a stowaway. It is a strange story that the stowaway has to tell. Accused of murder, he is shadowing the man whom he believes to be the murderer. A hint of treasure buried in the ruins of an old French Mission deep in the Central American jungle, together with the desire to aid his friend, leads Hal to take up his cause.In the fever-laden jungle, miles from the coast, it becomes a battle of cunning and endurance between the two youths and a diabolically clever half-breed who attempts desperately to destroy them as he has destroyed others who have searched for the treasure. How Hal, bound to a tree and left to an almost certain death, turns the tables on his enemy, makes a story of adventure and mystery that every boy will love.”--From the dust jacket.

Author Bio for Fitzhugh, Percy Keese

Author Image

Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876-1950) was an American author. His first known work, The Goldenrod Story Book was published in 1906. The bulk of his work, having a Boy Scouting theme, revolves around the fictional town of Bridgeboro, New Jersey. Characters included Tom Slade, Pee-wee Harris, Roy Blakely, and Westy Martin. Fitzhugh's Scouting based books were very popular with children and adults. His characters became so real to his readers that it was not uncommon for Percy to receive fan mail addressed to the characters themselves. In the 1930's, he began writing the Hal Keen Mystery Series (10 titles) under the pseudonym Hugh Lloyd. They were followed by another mystery series - Skippy Dare - (3 titles). Neither of these series achieved the popularity of his Scout work.
