Summary
A lion on a man-eating rampage has shut down the construction of a railway in 1896 East Africa. The beast hunts, showing no fear of man or fire. What's more, it's killing for sport rather than for food--and it has an almost supernatural knack for knowing what traps await it. Big-game hunter Remington and construction engineer Patterson set out to stop this unstoppable monster. But, in this astonishing tale of man against beast, the hunters become the hunted
