Editorial reviews

If you like vivid flights of fancy, Edgar Rice Burroughs is your man. The famed author of the Tarzan series paints with a broad brush on a large canvas. Here we find Lord Greystoke, formerly Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, abiding in London with a wife and an unruly teenaged son, Jack. Like his father, Jack has an incurable attraction to the wild, and we find him fleeing civilization to hone his skills deep in the African jungle. The story is rife with savage adventure in which the law of the jungle is played out by tribes of apes, trappers, poachers, and kidnappers. This is a coming-of-age story rippling with action and romance. Shelly Frasier does a creditable job, but some production problems - volume shifts and popping "p's" - mar the listen.

Publisher's summary

Paulvitch seeks revenge against Tarzan once again, this time by luring Lord Greystoke's rebellious son away from London. The great ape Akut foils the plot of revenge as he helps the boy escape the wrath of Paulvitch. Akut and the son flee to the savage African jungle where Tarzan was reared.

In his quest to survive, the young civilized boy reckons with life and death as he encounters the same dangers that his father once faced and ultimately matures into the mighty warrior, "Korak the Killer." In one of his many adventures, Korak rescues a young beauty, Meriem from an Arabian band of raiders. Like Tarzan, Korak discovers that the perils of the jungle are nothing compared to the evils of men. Tarzan Series #4.
