”Death will come to me as to every man, but until that moment I will live as if I were the strongest of all living things”. He is James Cloamby, Viscount Grandrith. The one and only. The white monkey of the jungle. Slayer of wild beasts and righter of wrongs. Last of the wild men. Lord of the trees. Pristine spirit of darkest Africa. Member of the House of Lords and one of the wealthiest men in the world. 30,000 years ago some Stone Age people discovered the elixir of life. Unless they met with disaster, they lived for centuries. Going back to his roots in the Gabon the Lord of the Trees is rudely intercepted. A 1200-foot plunge into shark-infested seas and a bloody rendezvous with jungle mercenaries gives him a taste for adventure again – which is just as well. For the Lord of the Trees has fallen into the grip of the Nine, grim and ancient rulers who control the world from distant mansions...
