Yet another atmospheric diversion for Jago and Litefoot as they disembark to explore an uncharted isle. It's got a very nice Conan Doyle Adventure story feel to it. A major highlight was the humorous twist in the reveal of the villain

Someone here as rated this story at a 5 they were not listening then to the same story that I have. Part three of the box set, brings the two investigators of the paranormal and the extraordinary, to an island, an island that seems to hold a secret that it is not wanting to give up. This is very much in the vein of those King Solomon mines, Lovecraft stories of the odd and strange, with a good dollop of Wells to boot, that aside this is a cracking story, which is a fantastic romp. Lady Danvers is the crux to this being taken over by a local entity, and almost getting J&L boiled alive, the way in which Benjamin in this plays his character is simply one of the standouts of these first three stories in this release.

Excellent and saddening at the same time as this is the penultimate story of this release, which I so far thoroughly enjoyed and as I type this review, I have listened to over three times in one day it is so so good.

Very apt for the Victorian investigators is this mysterious island adventure done in classic pulp fiction style.
Its the kind of story that works at the end of the nineteenth century with details that seem silly by todays standards - As I said, it's pulp fiction.
Go watch King Kong and Journey 2 the Mysterious Island. It all fits.

Their ship gets lost and finds a mysterious island off the coast of Sumatra.
There is a lost mining outpost manned by a great white hunter, there are native tribes, a legendary god and a secret cult of worshippers. There is lots of fun to be had here though the story is very different to the traditional Jago and Litefoot.

Dan Starkey plays the great and cowardly Neville Tibbs who joins the Lady Danvers and the infernal investigators; once again this allows the investigators to seperate and operate with different partners to usual which is an interesting element to this series.
