Daktari decides to test their hunting powers; they follow the scent and
find not only pigs, but something else very strange.|
There are other hunters in the jungle, too. And Pedro Gonzales and his companions seeking the legendary Amulet of Caracan will stop at nothing to get it.
When their paths cross, violence and danger threatens Marsh, Tracy, Jack, Paula and Handley - and a weird connection with the Amulet is revealed.
