Extremely disappointed in this book. I am from the area where the book was written and was looking forward to enjoying a good read set in beautiful Kruger National Park. Although geographically most of Kruger Park detail was correct, the plot, characters and story line left me yawning and totally bored. It did not hold my interest at all. Also the Afrikaans names were not spelt correctly and the Afrikaans used in the book made no sense. I could not give it more than one star .....
Since I'm Afrikaans speaking, I thought this book would be a thoroughly enjoyable read. Disappointment hit within the first few pages, but I'll finish the story because of the great descriptions of nature and the area where the story plays out.

The Afrikaans phrases are terrible. Even things that could have been translated with Google or Babelfish are messed up. "Jammer wees dat" is an excellent example. I don't even know what that phrase is supposed to mean, but if the author is perhaps reading

I've just finished reading Denise Hartman's novel, 'Killed in Kruger,' and really enjoyed it!

Set in the Kruger National Park, it's the story of a young American woman who travels to the Park in search of her photographer uncle who is assisting her in establishing her career as a journalist. On her arrival, she discovers that he has been murdered and, unwilling to follow her fiancé's advice to give up and flee the country, she sets out to discover what happened to her uncle.

Ms. Hartman's obvious

Very interesting story and having been to Kruger and Nelspruit makes it even more interesting - made me want to go back there and see all the animals again.
