Evil men had come to the land that belonged to Tarzan of the Apes, looting and killing as they moved. Patiently, the ape-man pursued them. But there was other evil. In a small valley of the Ghenzi Mountains, the last remnants of an ugly, perverted people dwelled in what they called their faith. It was an ancient belief—one that had come with their ancestors from Rome nearl...more

Several different groups traveling through the jungle, a lost civilization, and a group of slave traders. Classic Burroughs, and a fun read.
Not great, but pretty weird. I enjoyed it.
My favorite book when I was 12.
The 15th Tarzan book and Burroughs is repeating himself quite a lot by now, it's still good fun and would perhaps be more so if you haven't read all the books in the series up to this one.

Like "Tarzan Lord of the Jungle" Tarzan himself isn't actually in this one all that much especially not in the first half.

Different characters, same basic storyline. Stalin wants Tarzan eliminated and dispatches a hitman to central Africa. Tarzan becomes involved in the adventures of a number of jungle-travellers, including slave-traders, a reformed Chicago gangster, a geologist, the hitman, an English aviatrix and an innocent blonde bombshell named Jezebel who escapes from her home in the inevitable lost 'white' civilization in the heart of Africa. The baddies die horrible deaths, and the goodies live happily ever...more
More fun in Africa with Tarzan and co. Yet another lost civilization, puritanically religious, inbred and plagued with epilepsy. Enter an Englishwoman that bails out of a plane and is taken captive.

Throw in a geologist, a Chicago gangster, a band of slavers, a Russian that is intent on killing Tarzan and a fair maiden from the above mentioned civilization.

Convoluted, but still entertaining!
GREAT reading!
