Unable to convince almost anyone that he’s now really a wizard, John B.’s life takes a further turn out of control when he stumbles onto a sinister plot.

A mad sorceress is using the equipment at a secret military base to summon forth an ancient evil power.

John B. must overcome a hitman, difficult policemen, angry soldiers, a sadistic Colonel, the insane sorceress and a horde of demons.

He’s stuck out in the South Australian desert with three oddly matched friends and a big white Persian cat.

They’re armed with only their courage, wits, determination, a few antique weapons, and John B.’s own questionable magic powers.   No wonder he needs a drink.

Then there’s the two homicidal archaeologists.

One of them has a plan to use human sacrifice to reanimate an ancient god.

Only John B.’s unorthodox magic can stop him.  Or can it?

A golfing holiday in Hawaii for John B. and Wilko – what could go wrong with that? Plenty, when a homicidal maniac plans to blow up the Big Island.  Mystery, murder, fast cars, ghosts and maybe a god or two.

Is the unpredictable magic of the unlikely wizard enough to stop a volcano?  Failure this time could have earth-shattering consequences.
