Inextricably Merri Fencham from South Africa, Pierre Villeyand - the scion of a French dynasty and famous conductor, sangoma Vusi Dlamini - a Swazi royal prince, and others are drawn into the web of intrigue. And overall, the ancient influences of the ancestors, the "Toothless Ones", confound Western stereotypes....
