Could one man help to put an end to this horrific trade?
He was an old friend. His death was suspicious. At the least, ex special forces soldier Jason Green had to return to Africa to pay his respects. He never intended to get caught up in the murky and barbaric world of the illegal Ivory trade.
What had his ex military buddy been doing that got him killed?
Could Jason unravel the mystery of his death?
In the blazing heat of the Zambezi Valley, someone is watching.
The corrupt and powerful will stop at nothing to protect their business.
The deeper Jason digs, the more dangerous it gets. The risks are very real, the poaching syndicates must be stopped, but who will be the next to die?
The action is brutal and relentless in this shocking international crime epic. Everyone wants justice and retribution. But sometimes true justice comes at a hell of a price.
Get it now.

Great story on a touchy subject
Great story, but the narrator was a bit irritating at times when describing Jason's emotions
Exciting and Exotic
This is a great book! I do however have a number of mixed feelings. On the one hand the plot is a straightforward story of revenge for the death of a friend, that includes numerous sometimes far-fetched compilations of adventures and disasters. On the other hand the story sometimes seems it is contrived to fulfill a thriller stereotype or caricature. The mishaps that befall the main character are compounded to the extent of making one smile that anyone could imagine so many things happening to one person. The style of writing is clear, but because so much of it occurs in the first person, it too sometimes feels contrived. Particularly, there are minute details added about irrelevant matters (food eg) which ordinarily would suggest they would later become important. But in this case they are never mentioned again. One wonders if again thr author is trying to conform to some stereotype of how good writing must include little details. But to me it sometimes seems overdone.
Nevertheless, in my particular case many of the plot lines are interesting because I am personally familiar with many of the exact locations where they are staged. This made it feel as if I were actually there myself because I could visualize the environment, whether in the Zambezi River valley, Beira Mozambique, or even in Hong Kong.
Like the writing, the narration also has two sides. Ennunciation and the entirely appropriate Zimbabwean accent, by a narrator known to me personally, is excellent. However, whether because of the text itself or because of the narrator's own "zeal," it sometimes also seems overdone. There is drama and enthusiasm injected in places where it seems inappropriate and even amusing.
One other small detail, caveat emptor! The descriptions of the characters during their period as Selous Scouts, of the murders, and of the sex, are graphic to the point of making a grown man wince! ;-)
But let there be no doubt, this is a good book, a good narration, and a good read.... especially for someone interested in southern Africa and justice for the tragedy of elephant poaching. I recommend it!!
