Publisher's Summary

If Lars Marlin had three wishes, two have already been granted: he has escaped from Devil’s Island ... and he has come face to face with the man who put him there—Paco Corvino. But the third wish—putting a bullet in Corvino—will have to wait. Now the two are off to sea serving on a luxury yacht.

Corvino is a convict, con-man and killer who has schemed his way into a position as chief steward on a luxury yacht sailing out of Rio de Janeiro. And, in a twist as devious as it is diabolical, he’s managed to install Lars - his hated rival - as captain of the very same vessel. And there are even darker twists to come. . . .

Lars is determined to find out what Corvino has up his sleeve . . . and what killer cargo he’s hiding on board. But the yacht owner’s daughter proves to be a beautiful - and dangerous - distraction. Will Lars be safe in her arms . . . or is she part of Corvino’s plot - a deadly trap set with honey?

Don’t miss the boat—as the audio version of Cargo of Coffins brings to vivid life this scintillating story of suspense and surprising revelations at sea. “An exciting story that will keep the listener wanting more.” —Gil Wilson

Critic Reviews

“An exciting story that will keep the listener wanting more.” (Gil Wilson)
"Two escaped convicts, Paco Corvino and Lars Marlin, face off in Hubbard's fast-paced high-seas action yarn, first published in the November 1937 issue of Argosy....Contraband cargo (heroin) and the yacht owner's beautiful daughter add spice to this taut pulp melodrama." ( Publishers Weekly)
