Morgan cuts up a warring tribe - and Ra Mu, its sacred cult of the phallus
WHO IS MORGAN?
Michael Morgan, victor of the bloodshed of OCTOPUS HILL (also available in Mayflower) is a new type of hero. His job is to seek out and kill any threat to the interests of the British Government - AND HIS METHODS ARE HIS OWN AFFAIR
Now he joins Tarja Rankatcharyan in rescuing a beautiful English girl kidnapped by a sadistic tribe of rebels - and faces bullets, bombs and torture on the way.
The author, STANLEY MORGAN, has sold over a million books in his other famous series featuring RUSS TOBIN
Only the one edition that we're aware of.
The picture is pretty faithful to the action in the book for once and Michael Morgan looks pretty cool Tarja is helping the girl as per usual and the obligatory big gun is in the forefront of the picture. Does the job but lacks a scantily clad lady! 7/10.
Although it isn't specific this adventure is obviously set a year or two after the events of Octopus Hill - at one point Michael and Tarj shudder to remember their previous mission to the African continent. Katuma is another recently independent African nation with a problem - this time it is a rogue barbaric tribe called the Bhuta who kidnap the daughter of a prominent British Diplomat and our heroes are sent in to extract her from their evil clutches. The Bhuta however are obsessed with sex and penises in particular - although I suspect it was meant to be vaguely titillating at the time some of the scenes are genuinely disturbing and the graphic descriptions of ritual castration are enough to make a boy wince!
In Octopus Hill we learn that Michael Morgan shares a love of Vodka Tonics with Mr Russ Tobin, and in this book we also learn that they share a penchant for Air Hostesses! Michael is semi-shacked up with one at the outset of the book (well she lives in his apartment complex - which is as close to co-habiting as a man like Michael will get). She has no idea what he does for a living, just that he keeps disappearing for weeks on end and returning in a state near death!
