Tortured with knives, threatened with a slow, painful death; things are getting really nasty for Lieutenant Bill Mahone of Naval intelligence. The entire Chinese city of Tientsin is under siege from within—the streets filled with rioting, arson, mass looting and murder. And all because the city’s sacred idol, The Green God, has been stolen.  

Convinced he is hot on the trail of the jade deity, he is relentless in its pursuit.  But finding it pales in comparison with what he has to face in order to bring it back intact—getting out of a suffocating coffin, eluding Chinese torture and escaping a crazed bloodthirsty mob. He finds himself walking on a razor’s edge between worship and warfare—between a touch of heaven and the taste of hell.

As a young man, Hubbard visited Manchuria, where his closest friend headed up British intelligence in northern China.  Hubbard gained a unique insight into the intelligence operations and spy-craft in the region as well as the criminal trade in sacred objects.  It was on this experience that he based The Green God, which was his first professional sale, published in February, 1934—the beginning of a very remarkable and prolific writing career.

Also includes the adventure Five Mex for a Million, in which an American Army captain, falsely accused of murder, finds himself taking on the Chinese government, a powerful Russian general, and a mysterious, unexpected passenger.

About the Author:

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 325 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
