Publisher Description

A heart-racing thriller from the master of adventure. New novel Vendetta out now.

"Captures the horror of recent events in Africa, as well as providing an entertaining read. Highly recommended." Canberra Times

Lawyer Mike Ioannou is dead after a hit and run in Thailand.
A home invasion threatens the life of medico Richard Dunlop.
In Johannesburg, a car jacker nearly kills photo journalist Liesl Nel.

Unrelated incidents in a dangerous world, or something else entirely? Australian war crimes prosecutor Carmel Shang joins the dots. All three victims are linked by a photograph that was clutched in the hand of a dying man nearly twenty years ago. The picture holds a clue to how madness gripped a country resulting in a million people losing their lives.

Carmel has to not only confront the perpetrators of the unprecedented slaughter, but Richard and Liesl, the two people she never wanted to see again. Richard was the UN military doctor she was in love with in Rwanda, and Liesl was the woman who came between them. Now they are thrown together again, desperately trying to find out why the photograph is making them the targets of an assassin.

In a quest that takes them from South Africa's Kruger National Park to Zambia, Australia, and back to Rwanda, where it all began, they find that amidst the indestructible majesty and beauty of Africa, yesterday's merchants of death are dealing in a new currency - illegal traditional medicine and the barbaric live trade in endangered African wildlife; businesses they're prepared to kill for to protect.

Fans of David Baldacci, Wilbur Smith and Ken Follett will love Tony Park.

Gripping read

Phew, have just finished reading this gripping story & now exhausted. There is no holding back on the history, characters & loss of life to both humans & animal kingdom roaming the wilds of Africa in this book. Often heartbreaking. My second book & looking to the next.

Dark Heart

Every book of Tony Park I have read is just such a wonder. It is educational, social-cultural, demographics, fauna & flora, animals all rolled into cant put down gripping page turning suspense. Each book Tony Park raises the bar of his own personal goal in delivery of a great book. Each book is worthy of a 2-3rd read.
