The Black Sultan
L. Ron Hubbard
Mysteries & Thrillers
Meet Eddie Moran, a slightly disreputable American cooling his heels in French Morocco. Like a young Cary Grant, he’s as smooth as they come. He’s pulled off any number of crooked schemes, but his latest caper is one he may not be able to escape…even if he wants to. Imprisoned by The Black Sultan, Eddie falls for a stunning young woman in the Sultan’s harem. For her, he might go straight—if he can get them out of this hellhole alive. The desert winds howl and the battles rage as the audio version of The Black Sultan transports you back to a storied era of blood and war in North Africa. When The Black Sultan was originally published, Hubbard said that writers too often “forget a great deal of the languorous quality which made the Arabian Nights so pleasing. Jewels, beautiful women, towering cities filled with mysterious shadows, sultans equally handy with robes of honor and the beheading sword. . . . These things still exist, undimmed, losing no luster to the permeating Occidental flavor which reaches even the far corners of the earth today.” Hubbard brings this unique insight to his stories of North Africa and the Legionnaires, investing them with an authenticity of time, place and character that kept his readers asking for more. The desert winds howl and the battles rage as the audio drama of The Black Sultan transports you back to a storied era of blood and war in North Africa. Also includes the adventure story, Escape for Three, in which a bold trio of French Legionnaires come to the rescue of their great leader—only to decide he may not be so great after all.
