From the cover: “Put two black panthers in a cage travelling from Rome to Paris, rare, beautiful, dangerous creatures. Tuck into one of the studded collars both of them wore the two tiny rolls of film whose possession made Catherine Talbot a very frightened woman, and with cause. Here are the first ingredients of a memorable adventure. It seemed so easy for Quain to take over these secret records. They were going his way, and what could be a safer hiding-place than the neck of a panther? But that was reckoning without the accident that let loose the wild beasts in an Alpine valley, and brought there the stranger who knew more than was healthy for Catherine or Quain. Panther-hunt and man-hunt, the chase was on.”
