I read most of Willard Prices adventure books as a child, but Cannibal Adventure was not one of these. I was very happy to find the book in 2003, but unfortunately I found it to be rather derogatory and insulting towards the people of PNG. I happened to be living in PNG at the time and found myself rather embarrassed to be reading it.
I know attitudes at the time of writing were rather different to those of today, but I still wish Willard Price had taken the time to understand the people he was

The last decent Adventure of the series focuses on capturing the fauna of Papua New Guinea. There are some effective action sequences, but Kaggs' return is rather disappointing - for such a clever villain, his attempts to wipe out the Hunts seem uncharacteristically weak.

These books were wonderful ways of escaping to exotic shores when I was growing up; a fantastic alternative to Enid Blyton!
