"Captain George Glanvil, sombre, morose and embittered by a broken engagement, is master of the Vega, a tramp steamer bound for Panda, a fever-stricken settlement in East Africa. Much against his will he is required by his employers to give passage to Helen Salvia who, with her child, has been deserted by her drunken and dissolute husband. The voyage allows for the well-rehearsed problems of a beautiful woman isolated among rough and ready men, dependant upon their inherent chivalry for her safety and the well being of her child. On arrival at Panda, with its corrupt officials and sinister presence of the local agent, Glanvil, by now captivated by Helen, acts as her emissary and protector in her dealings with her husband, who scratches a disreputable living there. A gun fight in the bush, a night time rescue and the possibility of pursuit mean that the only escape lies in taking the Vega over the bar at Panda just as the treacherous tide begins to ebb."--FBYSociety
