RAIDERS PASSED
by John Hunter · Illustrator: Eric Parker
Other content: Crook Colonies (article)
Notes: This is the first issue of the Sexton Blake Library's 3rd series. A British diplomat, George Randall, is due to visit Binali in East African to pursuade the tribal chiefs of the area to ally with Britain. A fortune in gold has been sent ahead as a gift to his hosts. But before his mission starts, Randall disappears. His daughter, Diane, ask Sexton Blake to investigate. Clues lead the detective to a wharf on the Thames. The owner, Abe Gunson, denies any knowledge of Randall. Later, though, he brings a man named Prendergast to see Captain Dack, the owner of the Mary Ann Trinder. Prendergast wants to hire the ship to take him to Binali. Meanwhile, Tinker falls foul of a gangster named Lou Valeski and is imprisoned in an empty house. Valeski, together with Prendergast, Gunson, Diane and a number of henchmen, boards the Mary Ann Trinder and sets sail for Binali. Dack soon finds that he has a stowaway aboard — Tinker! The lad, after overhearing Valeski's plans, had managed to escape and secretly board the ship after first sending a message to Blake instructing him to fly to Binali. Dack tries to keep Tinker hidden but, during a battle with a U-boat, Blake's assistant is spotted. The submarine is sunk and four survivors are taken aboard. Prendergast conspires with them and, one night, with their help, he and his men hijack Dack's ship, imprisoning Tinker and the crew. Upon arrival in Binali, the villains begin their negotiations with the tribal chiefs, pretending to represent the British government when, in fact, they simply want to steal the gold. Dack escapes and allies himself with a chief named Karsa. Prendergast and Valeski, on the other hand, align themselves with Lanton, a well-educated but devious rival chief. The two factions battle, with Dack's group ultimately triumphant. Karsa is made the new leader of the region, Dack secretly lays claim to some of the gold, and Sexton Blake arrives on the final page just in time to see everything cleaned up.
Rating: ★★★★☆☆ A superbly well-plotted and very entertaining tale but Blake and Tinker are pushed so far into the sidelines that this novel barely justifies its inclusion in THE SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY.
