12 Chinamen and a Woman by James Hadley Chase
Lurid pulp fiction, thrilling and fun to read, with lurid hinted overtones of nasty sex and crime. A wild, fun book to read. Apparently, a woman is kidnapped and put aboard a ship, wherein there are 12 Chinamen and her. The sexual overtones are there, but this novel does not quite touch upon the fear of gang rape of the woman. Rather, it allows the reader to imagine what might happen to the woman. An interesting, very hard-to-put-down tale. Recommended.
Only one woman could satisfy Glorie Leadler's craving for love and excitement.And though this golden-haired bit of feminine dynamite could have had a dozen men at her feet for the asking, it was a solitary Oriental who made her heart beat fast. When jealous rivals tore that midnight lover from Glorie's arms, her overheated emotions burst forth in a volcano of love-stricken vengeance that rocked Florida and left a sizzling mark on many men's souls.
I you like a combination of the passionate writing of Donald Herderson Clarke and the violence and vogor of Dashiell Hammet you'll go for this great James Hadley Chase novel.Author of No Orchids for Miss Blandish, Chase is a master at mixing hard men, soft ladies, and the shocking impact of unexcpeted action. Twelve Chinamen and a A Woman is a book we guarantee you won't lay down until the last thrill-packed page.

This was a quick read, sort of. I started one night in bed, and then had to get up and finish it! It's a wildly adventurous story, and it's well worth the time and effort to read it. Makes me want to read more of the 'noir' and scary pulp detective and thriller tales.

This was kind of frightening yet fun to read. It's not explicit, but hints and sort of gives an overview of what happens to a woman amid a bunch of horny pirates!
