" When Pudge Barton went on safari in Kenya with her friend Beryl and Beryl's father, Commissioner Newton, with whom she was staying for the summer holidays, she little knew what lay ahead. Instead of a peaceful trip, living in the open air, slipping beneath the African moon, and seeing all a wild beauty of the countryside -- a trip that was to be her introduction to Kenya -- she and Beryl found themselves involved in a life-and-death struggle with Kaelabi, a powerful witch-doctor who had once been incarcerated by Commissioner Newton and had sworn vengeance on him and all white people." -- from the front fold over panel blurb.
