The Brides of Solomon

266 printed pages
Stories of intrigue and adventure at the edge of civilization
It has been nine years since Solomon Carver went up the Amazon. He left an anthropologist, but he has remade himself as a god. Rumors float down the river that Carver has taken two hundred wives and left the morality of Christendom behind. In the depths of the jungle, he has discovered a dying tribe, and has set about reviving it in a most unusual fashion. When a colonial administrator and a bishop go to discover the truth about Solomon’s women, they will find that civilization can flourish where one least expects it.
Along with “The Brides of Solomon,” this collection of stories includes the novella “The Case of Valentin Lecormier” and fourteen other tales of unparalleled excitement. From the front lines of World War II to the endless deserts of Syria, intrigue is always close at hand.
