To the island of Mannar—once an enchanted paradise, now polluted, its wildlife dead or dying—comes Sir Alexander Haye, zoologist and TV personality, determined to acquire one of the last of the island's elephants for London Zoo. A mother elephant and her calf are procured and the task of escorting them to the capital falls to Alexander's twin brother Max. Sick at heart, his attachment to the beasts growing with each step of their journey. Max delivers them to their fate and retreats to his sanctuary, where the malaria he has picked up in the jungle overcomes him and he plunges into fever and hallucination. When Alexander returns to the island, all the elephants are dead and the waves of violent anarchy that are sweeping through Mannar have reached even Max's haven.

From the Inside Flap:

anted paradise, now the island of Mannar is polluted, its wildlife dead or dying. Zoologist and TV personality, Sir Alexander Haye acquires two of the island’s last remaining elephants – a mother and her calf – for the London Zoo. Alexander’s twin brother, Max, escorts the animals to England, where, sick at heart, he delivers them to their fate. But he’s returned with more than the elephants, as he learns when malaria plunges him into fevered hallucinations.

From the Back Cover:

“A jeweled horror of a book.” –Spectator
