Synopsis: In this fourth novel, Fearn continued the same heady mix of headlong, free-wheeling adventure. Ethel Wilson, daughter of the Controller of the Dodd Space Line, accidently discovers a cavern of pure diamonds (created by volcanic action) in the Venusian jungle. But before she can notify the Earth authorities and the Amazon of her find, the secret of its location passes into the hands of Emiliam Voltique, the Leader of the native Venusians. Given the superhuman nature of the Amazon, Fearn was obliged to create unique villains to serve as worthy adversaries and Voltique was a classic example. Seller Inventory # ABE-1500301211655
