What a nerve-jangling and breathless short story this is.
The concept of the hunted becoming the hunter is simple enough, but the execution here is sublime. This is one of those short stories that you read in thirty minutes but remember for a lifetime.
To be honest, the first third of this book wasn't lighting my fire, but neither was it sending me to sleep.
We just had to endure as our anti-hero made his way to Africa and pondered his fate and life.
It was only when his luck and money ran dry that he was forced into an adventure of canibals, slave traders, man eating crocodiles, fighting off hordes of Zulu's and the terrifying spider-beast. The adventure portion has real propulsion and thunder.
Gripping, exciting and a beast so freakish you will be telling everyone about it. - A cracking adventure yarn that once underway is unputdownable.
