He asked, finally realising that the drumming he was hearing wasn’t in his head. It was coming from the valley, a haunting, relentless beat that was hypnotic and threatening at the same time. The percussive booms of scores of drums interleaved with brutal disharmony, plucking at Lemuel’s nerves and sending tremors of unease down his spine. Intrigued, he walked stiffly on tired legs to join the two women at the edge of the plateau. He put a hand on Camille’s shoulder and looked down into the valley.
