Rainsford and Whitney are on a boat and on their right is a island that was known as the Ship-Trap Island. Then Rainsford heard something went to the railing of the boat to find it and slipped off into the water getting left behind.
Rainsford had screamed and yelled for his pals on the boat but they left him. He swam to shore and now was lost with nothing, no drinking water, no food, and no where to rest.
Rainsford sees lights in the jungle and then finds an enormous building. He goes up to the door and is great by a man named Ivan. He then meets general Zaroff who is a tall man with dark hair. Rainsford questioned if he was Russian, but he was a Cossack according to Ivan. Zaroff was a hunter a very skilled one.
Zaroff said he needed to create a knew animal. He need to hunt something as smart as him. This "new animal" was men themselves. Rainfrord stated that it was murder. Which it was. Zaroff said that Rainsford was his next target.
The hunt was on Rainford was running from the man hunting Zaroff. Rainsford fought back as best as he could. Rainsford swam away back to Zaroffs castle and hid in his room. Zaroff had the best of him at least that what he thought. Zaroff didn't know he got away he thought his hounds killed Rainsford.
Rainford was behind the bed curtains on Zaroffs bed. Zaroff was shocked and confused. Zaroff the stated you have won this game. Zaroff stuck to his word and let his hounds demolish him. Rainsford never slept in a better bed. Rainsford had won the most dangerous game.
