About this Book

Print Excerpt

An elderly female died of an apparent heart-attack as she walked out of the Cross Roads post office around 2 p.m. yesterday. Bystanders claim that they saw a vehicle with someone who looked like Errol Flynn going by. The Chief-of-Police issued a statement saying: “There seems to be no relation between the two incidents.”

But there was still the problem of Flynn’s passport having been lost at sea. Ramon, who had gone ahead to America, had experienced trouble getting back into the country without identification. The World’s Handsomest Man actually had no proof that he was Errol Flynn. His wife in California sent him the only identification she could dig up, a copy of their marriage certificate. But since it was only a copy, he needed to have it notarized.

Aaron Levy remembered that his cousin, Eli Joseph, was a justice of the peace. Port Antonio was forty miles away, and Levy could easily have gotten someone closer to notarize the copy, but this way, he thought, Flynn would be able to see how the repairs were going on his boat, and Port Antonio would make a pleasant day trip for the movie star. “Eli’s a bit of a character,” Levy told Flynn, “but he’ll take good care of you an’ show you ’round.”

Out on the hotel balcony now, Flynn looked at his watch. It was time to get ready. He looked forward to checking up on the Zaca and to once again seeing Port Antonio, the little town where he’d come ashore after the sea-storm.
