It sounded like an impossible task: go out into the vast African bush and find man who was reported dead two years ago. But young Frank Henson needs a job, and Mansfield needs a guide to take him on his search, so they join forces. The trail takes them into the heart of the remote bush country on the border of Rhodesia and Mozambique. The further they penetrate, the more mysterious is the behavion of the usuallu friendly tribesmen. Soon they find that they are no longer the hunters but the quarry, pursued by someone who will not stop at murder in order to silence them forever. Set against a backround that he himself knows intimately, Wilfrid Robertson has written a story that no adventure lover will be able to resist.
