I really enjoy MS Clark’s stories and this one is a compelling page turner and fast paced, the setting is amazing and she holds no punches in what is going on in this story, with corrupt police and medications that are not what they should be. There is a lot happening in this book and I do highly recommend picking this one up and getting to know Dr. Lily Winters and her adoring husband musician, Quintin.

Lily is working with the World Health Organization and is asked to return to Africa and

I really enjoyed this book with the beautiful African setting and evil tainted-pharmaceuticals plotline. It makes you laugh and makes you cry as you continue to flip the pages until the very end. And yes, it does feature some very nice flamingos - including a cute baby! A gripping read.

First, let me just say that I am very happy that I requested for a review copy of this book and that I was able to finish it two days after it was released! This is my 1st book read from Australian author, TM Clark, and it definitely did not disappoint. I always find myself requesting for books that are medically related maybe it’s because of the fact that I am a nurse and I can totally understand the terms and scenarios. The writing style is beautiful, I enjoyed how the story went and I was ...more

I found this book fascinating reading, indeed.

Set in South Africa, Dr Lily and her Austrian husband Quintin try to make sense of what happened to her predecessor, Dr Ian, and why her patients are dying in such big numbers. Something is clearly going on but will this also cost Lily her life as well?

I loved the relationship between Lily and Quintin, they were so lovely together. I also enjoyed good people from whatever cultural background, coming together to do the right thing. There was a lot of

I have loved each and everyone of Tina’s thrillers. Each one explores a different face of Africa and shows us what is hidden in the darkest continent behind the magnificent animals and a people with a powerful belief in hope and that it will be better tomorrow. I will not repeat the story except to say that amongst the trouble Lily and Quintin together must face another insidious enemy for which they have no treatment and as yet no cure. A disease that will bring them to their knees.
