But Rita had only survived the disastrous first expedition because of the help of Anjani, a white man of immense strength and stature who had been brought up in the jungle by a native tribe. Now Rita hopes to be reunited with Anjani, but she has reckoned without the danger posed by his treacherous twin brother, Tocoto, who is contesting Ajani for the supremacy of the Dark Continent; and of the beautiful Mea, the ruler of Akada's ancient sister city.
