t Ki-Gor's skull. This cowardly blow accomplished what the two natives had failed to do. Ki-Gor pitched face forward like a felled ox. Helene screamed in horror as she saw her beloved mate lying crumpled, blood gushing from his head.

In panic she started to throw herself at Ki-Gor, but ruthless hands caught her arms and drew her back.

Basru's cruel eyes shifted from the fallen Jungle Lord to the sobbing girl. "You'll have no further need of him, woman. He's dead, or if he's not, he soon will be."

not very good. Ki-Gor is a tarzan rip-off, but there is not much to recommend this one. It has a kidnapped junglegirl, a lost white race, a jungleman with amnesia and the jungleman spends most of the book in blackface. nothing really special about it.
