Abstract:

Dr. Peter Gardner flees an unsavory practice in England and settles on a small Caribbean island with his three-year-old daughter, Virginia. Cut off from the main island of Trinidad by a glistening green sea, Peter makes use of the local wild flora for medical tests. He even conducts amoral experiments on the dark-skinned orphan Carlos, whose home he steals. Though Peter considers the boy no better than a savage, he nonetheless schools the child alongside his daughter. But after Peter discovers a forbidden liaison between Carlos and Virginia and accuses the boy of a heinous crime, it is up to a brusque English inspector to discover the truth -- and expose a monstrous secret.
