Joan of the Island

Joan of the Island  (1920) 
Ralph Henry Barbour and H. P. Holt
A man literally drops into the ocean … and bumps into a friendly South Seas island … just in time to save the beautiful young white co-owner from being strangled by a murderous black.And so starts this adventure, involving, among others: her shiftless brother; pearls; an amoral Portuguese who'll stop at nothing including murder. …

{Note: If you can't blank out the odd example of casual racism typical of that period, this is probably not the book for you]
