A fictionalised account of ivory poachers in central Africa. Good illustrations by D.J. Watkins-Pitchford, BB. "Alec Charters is accepted by the Voluntary Service Organisation for a spell among the Congolese refugees pouring across the frontier into Uganda. In the heat and dust of a Refugee Camp he plays his part in alleviating distress, until the day when an S.O.S. is received. A plane from Entebbe to Lake Kivu is in trouble, one engine is on fire, and it seems certain to crash in jungle country. Alec is asked to set off to do what he can for the survivors. There is only one man who can help him, Ivory Jack Beddows, an old odd-job man, once a professional elephant hunter. Alec starts out to bring help, and walks unknowingly into an ivory poacher's camp. From that moment dangers crowd round him. He has to find food for himself and Ivory Jack; he also has to keep one jump ahead of a man who is determined to silence him. If Alec can get away the slaughter of elephants for red ivory will be checked. If he can get away!" A.R. Channel is one of at least seven pseudonyms used by the author, Arthur Catherall.
