As usual, Johns forgot about Smyth for most of the book, but there are tentacles and venomous orchids and coral atolls and Li Chi as Biggles speeds round the world from British Guiana to Egypt. Great fun.

Biggles simply cannot land anywhere without being dragged into new adventures.

This book is pretty weird because it just involves Biggles flying around all the place without any real purpose with Algy and Smyth.
I find it peculiarly hilarious that W.E. Johns thinks all America bad guys call people, “baby”.
Algy seems very young and flighty. More like Ginger.
Finally a reason that you shouldn't smoke.
Oh, and there seems to be more than the usual destruction of nature.
This is the one where Biggles meets Li Chi.
