Read by John Cormack. Duration: 14:12

Description: The year:1912. The place: East Africa. The action: ivory-poaching deep in the German-occupied delta of the steaming Rufiji river. Flynn, elephant-hunter and hounder of Germans, likes to enjoy the spoils of his sport without too much effort - and the arrival of rich young Sebastian Oldsmith is a windfall he cannot resist. Sebastian is rapidly plunged into not merely an ivory-hunt, but a murderous game of hide-and-seek with Flynn's enemy, the gross German Commissioner, Herman Fleischer.

Not my favourite WS storyline; a thrilling ride just the same.
