Description: "The madman turned all his attention to the youth, who, standing at the rail of the derelict ship, was unaware of his extreme danger. Like a beast of prey, the older man crept stealthily toward his intended victim..."
In a remote European kingdom, plotters had moved toward the murder of an old king and his young heir, Michael. But the lad escaped, and, through a series of the chilling, heart-stopping adventures only ERB could have written, finds himself on the shores of Africa, his only friend and protector a giant feral cat.
Then, one day, Michael and his loyal friend find themselves face to face with the deadliest enemy of all.
