Excerpt

d been the first to discover the dead man, Pant, stood with his fur hood tied tightly over his ears.

Johnny was about to rebuke him, but the word died on his lips. "Pshaw!" he whispered to himself, "there's trouble enough without starting a quarrel beside an open grave."

Jarvis, who was the oldest man of the group and had been brought up in the Church of England, read a Psalm and a prayer, then with husky voice repeated:

****.

It's an episode of a large series and the only one I've read.
Adventures of a group of gold-miners working at a Russian concession in Alaska, year 1920.
Dangerous tigers, malevolent natives and poisonous plants, in a mostly plain narrative.
But also, mysterious grammophon disks messages, treacherous Orientals, murderous Russians, a dirigible balloon, a strange community of political exiles and many, many gold everywhere.
Not a great book but nicely readable, relatively fast-paced (after a somewhat slow first chapter) and showing a curious historical moment.
