Aside from an anonymous note telling Jack that his brother Max was in trouble, he'd received no other communication in over six months. Now, Jack finally receives a coded message from Max possibly detailing his whereabouts. But soon duty calls, and Jack is whisked away to the sweltering savannah of Kenya before he can decipher it. Once there, a wise and kind Masai chief alerts Jack to a series of elephant killings where the corpses have been robbed of their tusks. Jack must find the malevolent ring of poachers responsible before more of these endangered species are destroyed.
