OUT NOW! Whither Thou Goest by Tinnean
Sequel to Call Me Church
Johnny Smith’s luck has been bad from the moment the Stock Market crashed and he’d been forced to leave an exclusive boarding school, and he sees no reason to believe it will ever change. But then he meets Church Chetwood, a dashing, devil-may-care director of motion pictures, and his life is turned topsy-turvy when Chetwood takes him along on what the man promises will be the adventure of a lifetime. Johnny doesn’t care, as long as he’s with his Mr. Chetwood.
The year before, Church had hired Captain Johansen to take him to the mysterious island of Iwi Po’o on the tramp steamer August Moon. There he’d found and captured a sabretooth tiger and brought the animal back to the States. “Chetwood’s Kitty,” so dubbed by the press, is the reason he has to leave New York so precipitously — people had died and the law is after him. The only bright spot is the kid he’d come across in a saloon. Church thinks he’s had the best idea of his life when he decides to take Johnny along with him to the South Seas. He and Captain Johansen plan to make a living transporting goods from one island to another, and they have every intention of avoiding Iwi Po’o.
But a treacherous stowaway has plans to take the August Moon for himself, and convinces the men to mutiny. Johnny, Church, the skipper, the ship’s cook, and the wireless operator, accompanied by the little girl Johnny had rescued from prostitution, find themselves in a lifeboat, with Iwi Po’o the only spot of land. The last time Church was on this island, twelve men lost their lives to what lived there. Will Johnny, Church, and their friends somehow manage to make it our alive this time?
