Irish surgeon Dr.

William Edward Dillion hunted them down in British tall ships, tasked with the medical care for all on board - including rescued slaves from the captured trading vessels. When the great missionary David Livingstone went missing in central Africa in 1872, Dr. Dillon, grounded with a damaged ship, led the Livingstone East Coast Expedition as second-in-command. They marched 500 miles with badly needed medical supplies only to discover the worst: Livingstone was dead.

This is the account of a man so intent on keeping people alive, he travelled across land and sea to do it. Dillon met his end in a tent in the middle of Africa. But the circumstances around his death are labelled suspicious and a new expedition in 2004 sets off to find the answers.
