The story:
Still walking around as Mr. Walker in the desert (see S087 The Massacre and S088 The Bike Gang), the Phantom comes across a distressed woman who claims to have been abducted by large hawks and subsequently returned to her car wreckage.

When a cowboy nearby relates the same kind of experience and there is nothing linking the two victims apart from the stark, cold-coloured clothes they are wearing, the Phantom dresses for the occasion and waits until a number of hawks start appearing on the horizon...

Watch out for:

  • The Phantom sporting a bath robe in the desert
  • A high-flying experience
  • The truth
