Dead Donavans tell no tales!
International playboy Paul Donavan and his loyal butler-bodyguard Hicks were in Hong Kong because of an S.O.S. from an old friend, Pat Delaney.

At a time like that there was only one thing to do. Get out of town on a Chinese junk. But after a slow trip on a safe boat, complete with wine, women, and weapons, Donavan knew he had to quit philandering and come ashore firing, or risk one of the big three blowing up his future with one big boom....!
