Setting: Rainford, a big game hunter, is talking with Whitney about "ship-trap" island in Caribean Sea. They are about to travel to the Amazon by yacht. Unfortunately, he loses his balance and falls into the sea.
He finds himself stranded on Ship-Trap Island. There, he finds out a huge fancy house. There are only two people lives here, that is General Zaroff- the owner and Ivan-the servant. They let Rainford comes in and serves him good food. After that Zaroff tells Rainford he hunts the most dangerous prey: man. He finally realizes he is being his prey.
Here is the rule of the game: He must find the way to survive for three days. If not, he will die under Zaroff's gun. While trying to hide Zaroff, he builds a Malay man-catcher and Burmese Tiger Pit. Rainford kills one of Zaroff's best dogs and Ivan.
He leaps off of a cliff into the sea and hides for the while. Zaroff can't find where Rainford is so he thinks Rainford is dead.
They have a fight in Zaroff's bedroom. Finally, Zaroff's dead under Rainford's knife.
At the end of story, Rainford has the best sleep ever in Zaroff's room
