Sanders is leaving Africa! Trouble has beset the popular and respected Commissioner in recent weeks. Bosambo, Chief of the Ochori, made himself scarce just before the arrival of bumbling English Cabinet Minister Blowter -- who was abducted and then strangely rescued . . . and now, out of the blue, the Commissioner is granted six months' leave. This puts Sanders' unsettled sector of Africa under the oversight of Hamilton of the Houssas, together with an entirely unknown and probably inexperienced young man named Francis Augustus Tibbetts -- promptly dubbed "Bones" upon his arrival. Trouble begins from the start. As news spreads of the Commissioner's departure, N'gori, the Chief of the Akasava, sets his drums to calling for a dance-of-many-days. A dance-of-many-days spells "spears" -- and spears spell trouble!
