At that instant, horse and rider and lion seemed to disappear into the very earth, and there was only a swirling column of dust to mark where they had been." A new generation. An age-old struggle. Ralph Ballantyne is following in his father Zouga's footsteps, as a hunter, gold prospector and promoter of British colonialism in Africa.

In fact, for Craig Mellow, the last Ballantyne, there is still a terrible price to pay for the actions of his ancestors...
