Synopsis

Adventure story set in Asia around the First World War. Young American heiress Eve Tozer has only twelve days to find her father, missing somewhere in Asia, or else he will be declared dead and all his business interests will revert to his unscrupulous partner Bentik, leaving Eve with no money. She hires heavy-drinking pilot Patrick O'Malley, who has the only available planes. Along with O'Malley's mechanic Struts, they fly to Afghanistan where her father was last known to be heading for, and from there they find themselves criss-crossing Asia following up clues, having skirmishes with tribes and with Bentik's goons, hoping they can find Bradley Tozer before time, or their luck, runs out.
