Abstract:

Two lions on a man-eating rampage have shut down the construction of a railway in 1896 East Africa. The beasts hunt together, showing no fear of man or fire. What's more, they're killing for sport rather than for food--and they have an almost supernatural knack for knowing what traps await them. Big-game hunter Remington and construction engineer Patterson set out to stop these unstoppable monsters. But, in this astonishing tale of man against beast, the hunters become the hunted.
