From the cover: “Streatfield’s Marauders — a cosmopolitan collection of drop-outs, fall-outs, mercenaries and renegades, including a disgraced ex-Royal Navy officer and a missing witness from the My Lai trials, trek through hostile hinterland of Central Africa — in search of a legend.

A legend as old as the Dark Continent itself, passed down over the centuries in tribal lore and camp fire tales. A legend investigated in vain by explorers, adventurers and writers as well as Stanley during his epic search for Livingstone. A legend of the Beach of Diamonds. . . .”
