A fanatical hunter, who has experienced all the pleasures his favourite sport has to offer him, can find satisfaction now only in hunting human beings. Living alone on an island, he causes shipwrecks and takes their victims for his prey - a game which, able to defend itself with other means than brute force, offers a more dangerous, exquisite pleasure to the hunter.
