|adventure, Brazil, Canadiana, fiction
Deep in the heart of Brazil, up from Para, and situated on the back reaches of the Amazon, was the little town of Bom Successo. There everything was “wide open”, and the inhabitant desperadoes who were the offscouring of the States and Europe had fled there to escape extradition. The early law was Blacktower, the self-appointed King of “Bom Successo”.
The little town became the scene of intrigue, murder and a revolt of the natives. The real trouble started when Blacktower took on “Legs” as a houseboy. It was “Legs” who later attempted a murderous assault on his master, and who planned the escape of La Rosadora, the beautiful American singer, kept a virtual prisoner by her manager, and with whom Blacktower had fallen in love.
Why “Legs” nursed such a flaming hatred for Blacktower, and under what conditions he had formerly known La Rosadora are facts that slowly reveal themselves as this intensely exciting tale unravels.—Dustcover. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert
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.
