Entertaining but I found the writing style a little clunky.

Recommends it for: travelers who have been to southern Africa

Definitely worth a read for anyone who has visited Etosha park in Namibia. Whodunit, passion, big game, African cultures. The author is maybe a bit too head on; nothing is left to imagination. Even so, the tale is directly rendered without turning from harder realities and is pretty gripping. Long book but a quick read.

This story kept me engaged from beginning to end. It had a bit of everything I like to read about, murder, suspense, romance, action and adventure. I got a real feel for the characters and environment, Beverley's style of writing makes you feel like you are there!
I enjoyed the way the author set about describing each of the characters and then how she built them up through the story. To me the book was more about how they all grew and coped with the stressful situation.
I loved this book, could not put it down. It had everything, action,
suspense, romance and adventure.

I strongly recommend but not for the faint hearted (some distrubing
events occur).
A really good book with many different aspects to it, romance, murder, african wildlife.
Enjoyable but got a bit long winded

Beverley Harper was born in Bulli on the New South Wales south coast. In 1967 she travelled to Africa, intending to spend one year there. She stayed twenty, returning to settle in Australia in 1988. Despite loving the northern tablelands, the memories of Africa have provided the inspiration for her best-selling novels and she visited that continent for research purposes once a year.
