When a brilliant young English doctor vanishes into the impenetrable forests of the northern Congo, intelligence chief Jack Milton sends a message to his godson, Luca Matthews, in the Himalayas, asking him to go to Africa and find Joshua. Reluctantly, Luca obeys; but he is no longer the man he once was.
Meanwhile in Africa, brilliant pilot Beatrice (Bear) Makuru, also wants to brave the northern wilderness.
This was my first listen to Patrick Woodhead's work, and I can best describe it as a solid boys own adventure romp in the style of a Wilbur Smith Story, and while certainly it isn't up there with the best stories I have enjoyed, it was still a gripping enough yarn to make the daily commute easier.
