The Nal-toon - the carved wooden god-totem of the K'ung tribe of Africa's Kalahari Desert - is stolen from the midtown are gallery that exhibits Veil Kendry's dream-paintings. It isn't hard to identify the thief; Tobal'ad, a K'ung warrior-prince flown in to publicize the original theft of the idol from the tribe, had snatched the statue and pinned the security guard to the wall with a tribal spear before rushing into the relative safety of Central Park. It wouldn't seem difficult to run down an African tribesman in Manhaattan. But the prince is a superior warrior, able to conceal himself even in the wastes of the Kalaahari. The police aren't the only ones looking for Tobal'ak. There's the lovely missionary, Reyna Alexander, who enlists Veil's aid. And for reasons unknown to them, the Nal-toon is of obsessive interest to the Cosa Nostra - and to Carl Nagle, the most corrupt cop In New York. Veil must use his paranormal dream-powers to enter the mind of the warrior-prince, locate him, and ensure his - and the Nalltoon's - return to the Kalahari. But time is short; Nagle and his squad of vigilantes are quite willing to kill Veil, Reyna, and Tobal'ak in their quest for the idol. Book Dust Jacket
