The story begins with Cub fishing in Scotland waiting for Gimlet and company to arrive. While waiting, Cub befriends a young man whose father has disappeared and Cub finds himself involved in a tale of missing treasures, with an indication that the treasures are in the Orient. This is confirmed when two unwelcome guests from that part of the world turn up to speak with Cub’s friend. It all becomes rather unfriendly but clues hidden away by the boy's father indicate that to secure the treasure a visit to the Orient is required. By now Gimlet and Cooper have joined Cub, and with his friend set off for Siam.
The unwelcome gentlemen, who have anticipated where the searchers were going, spot the party in Bangkok and a chase begins to find the treasure. Narrow escapes on both sides occur. A shoot-out sees Gimlet and friends successful and the treasure, scattered around the jungle after a ferocious fight, is gathered together and the party return happily to England.—Gerry @ Goodreads.com.
