Oratovoa is a remote South Sea Island with an evil reputation. There are tales of boats and their crews who have set out for it and never returned, of savage packs of dogs who devour anyone who sets foot there. The people of neighbouring islands give the place a wide berth.

Is there really anyone on Oratovoa? Or are the stories just travellers' tales? Nuclear testing is due to start nearby, so Biggles and his friends must land on the island to find out for sure. They soon find danger on Oratovoa lies where it is least expected...
