This is the second story featuring Bob Dukes, diffident hero and single parent to his three children, Poppy, Suze and Charlie. Bob is now beginning to find his feet as the newly appointed Commercial Officer and aide to the Governor of Mazita. Life would be sweet if he could just get on with his real job but every time he sorts out a problem, Sir Phillip comes up with another role to add to his job description.

This time it is White Hunter and Bob is instructed to rid the neighborhood of a marauding leopard. Bob has never actually shot anything but a stuffed target during his army service, long ago during World War II. He’s not at all happy about having to confront a ‘big cat’. But his friends come to his rescue and he gives the situation his best shot, in keeping with the esprit de corps of the Diplomatic Service.

Bob Dukes lives on the idyllic tropical island of Mazita where he is the single parent of Poppy, Suze and Charlie. His boss, the Governor of this Crown Protectorate on the East African coast, is always calling Bob into his office and giving him some impossible task, well outside his job description as Commercial Officer and Aide.

In this quirky tale the future success of the island as an off-shore center is threatened by the strong whiff of corruption. Bob attempts to get to the bottom of things and see the guilty punished while he staves off life threats to the islanders and his family.

In this offbeat Christmas story about Bob Dukes and his family, Bob is called upon to entertain the Royal Navy over the Christmas period. He is annoyed about this as he feels it is outside his remit as Commercial Officer to the Governor of Mazita, an off-shore island on the East African coast.

The task proves to be even more challenging than expected especially for Poppy, Suze and Charlie who are called upon to display a compassion and knowledge way beyond their years.
