In the previous novel Jane had been kidnapped along with her infant son Jack, by Tarzan's enemy Nikolas Rokoff and his henchmen. In this novel the key point is like father, like son. Alexis Paulvitch, a henchman of Tarzan's enemy, Nikolas Rokoff, had survived his encounter with the ape-man and wanted to even the score using Jack Clayton, Tarzan's son, by luring him away from London and into his clutches. Unfortunately for Paulvitch, Jack had escaped with the help of the ape named Akut. Akut & Jack fled into the deep African jungle where two decades earlier Tarzan himself had been raised.
