Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures is a project created to release some of the author’s more unconventional manuscripts from the family archives. As part of the series, this edition of Off the Mangrove Coast contains exclusive bonus material!
From the jungles of Borneo to the hidden canyons of the American West from small-town fight clubs to a Parisian café at the end of World War II, here are tales of betrayal and revenge, courage and cowardice, glory and greed, as only L’Amour can tell them. Here is the author at his best: A charismatic boxer itches to fight all comers, but his only shot at the championship is in beating the man who ruined his father. A beautiful movie star finds a dead man in her apartment and begs her ex-lover, a tough private eye, to clear her name. A reluctant hero guides a diamond-hunting couple up a river ruled by headhunters and pirates, in pursuit of a legendary stone and the mysterious warlord who guards it. A young renegade sails the South China Sea with a trio of dangerous men in search of treasure, but when it’s time to divide the prize, can he trust any of them? Combining electrifying action scenes, vivid historical detail, and characters who seem to leap off the page, these spectacular stories honor L’Amour’s legend.
