Chopstick Joe agrees to fly a disreputable passenger and a small bundle immediately to a distant air field - for a wad of cash. He doesn't count on Terry and Hotshot refusing to fly any more that night, even if he pays their back wages. The desperate passenger's pistol is much more persuasive and soon the pilots, the passenger and the precious bundle are flying deep into the jungle where they are forced down by the Dragon Lady's fighter planes. They discover that their cargo is a young boy - the titular ruler of an embattled Chinese province with three groups of men eager to pay to possess the child - dead or alive. Written by
