Review:

"I am glad that I am alive, if, for no other reason, because of the joy of reading this book." --Jack London

From the Back Cover:

Set among the islands of the Malay Archipelago, 'Victory' is the story of Axel Heyst, a 'utopist' who shuns human society in favour of a solitary existence on the island of Samburan. On a rare trip away from his island solitude, Heyst visits Schomberg's hotel in Sourabaya where he encounters an English girl who is part of a travelling ladies' orchestra. He rescues her from a wretched existence and takes her back to Samburan. Schomberg, who had designs on the girl, is furious, and later he exacts his revenge by directing three villains to Samburan in pursuit of the fortune that Heyst is rumoured to have there. Their arrival in Heyst's private paradise triggers a train of events which quickly reach a violent conclusion.
