'Sudden, violent death enshrouded the island port of Marapai. The kind of death known only to voodoo cults and savages. On this island Europeans lost their civilization, their innocence–and their sanity. And famed anthropologist David Warwick lost his life. Rumors whispered suicide. But the rumors were lies. Everyone lied to haunted Emma Warwick, who suspected murder and set out to trap a killer–only to discover the very roots of terror!'

'He tells of an Adelaide bank clerk, Archibald Cups, who is found guilty of embezzlement, and sentenced to imprisonment for five years, although he is innocent. Escaping from custody, he conceals himself in the home of Judge Cartright, who had sentenced him. From there he flees to the house next door, where lives Dr. Carmichael, an eccentric surgeon, who performs an operation on the nose of Cups, thus changing his appearance. The two live together as friends for some time, until the surgeon dies as the result of an accident. Cups impersonates him (he had lived as a recluse, seeing practically nobody, and having no servants), and actually realises his estate. Eventually, after some hard knocks, fortune favours the innocent Cups, and the story ends happily.'
