The Hellbuster
Frank Bruno

In streamers of wine-coloured flame the sunset flared across; the evening stillness was like a spent sigh when the infamous Roaring Meg (“Bully” Krausen, Master) dropped anchor in New Zealand’s Bay of Islands. It was Christmastide’ 1843 and the peaceful beauty of the place enthralled the Reverend Jamie M’Fergus.

But the soft beauty thinly veneered the vice & cruelty, treachery and murder that gave the Bay of Islands the reputation of the He3ll of the Pacific. How Mr. M’fergus came ashore to the Bloody Bay a few hours later was nothing save the wet clothes he stood in and a fiery evangelical zeal; how he became allied with Champagne Jimmy, the Beachcomber and Lily du Mal, the Maori-French “Tiger Lily”; how he fought the notorious “Bully” Krausen to a standstill with bare knuckles; and , indeed, how he became The Hellbuster, is told in this superb ‘tough’ novel of early New Zealand.
