SYNOPSIS: 

Arriving at a South Seas island on a small, private vessel, Charlie Chan and his family learn from the tribal leader that the Great One, in the form of a large bronze idol, is threatening the inhabitants with destruction if they do not continue to make offerings of valuable pearls to him.  Realizing that there is much more to the story, Chan and the kids search for the answers.           

OF NOTE:

acaraphobia - An irrational fear of insects such as scabies, lice, ticks, or bedbugs.
Charlie Chan: "If I'm not mistaken, Mr. Bluestreak is suffering from acaraphobia...fear of flying insects." (Actually, Mr. Chan would be more correct to refer to the fear of flying insects, mainly moths in the case of Mr. Bluestreak, as mottephobia.)
