(Funny Capers DownUnder 3)
Ralph Whistler just wants to get home for the birth of his daughter in this funny novel.
Formerly published as Escape from Mad Bill’s Island, this facelifted story begins when Ralph gets chased into the bay by an angry mob.
He is rescued by a passing fishing boat but is distraught when he finds out the boat is headed out to sea for six weeks, the skipper is dodgy, the deckhand is as thick as two short planks and the two stowaways on board are wanted criminals.
They all end up on an island ruled by a gun-toting old man, and that’s when Ralph’s real problems begin.
The old man, Mad Bill, just wants to be left alone on his island. So why does he make it so hard for anyone to leave?
