Tony Park's trademark storytelling prowess turns this hunt into a thrilling - and deadly - escapade through some of the most dangerous, yet beautiful, places on earth.

Linley's friend, Kate, supposedly died in a fiery car accident in Zimbabwe, but Kate's sister wants to believe it is an elaborate fraud.
South African detective Sannie van Rensburg is also looking for Linley, as well as a serial killer who has been murdering prostitutes on Sannie's watch. Top of her list of suspects is Hudson Brand.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Australian crime writer Tony Park spends almost half his time in Africa, and his intimate knowledge of the continent is on display in this intriguing thriller. Zimbabwean expat Linley Brown longs to leave behind her life of petty crime, but her troubled past has attracted the attention of a determined South African police detective and an American-born safari guide and private investigator. Meanwhile, a serial killer is mutilating young women in increasingly brazen crimes. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Africa’s disjointed cities and majestic wilderness, The Hunter is both gripping adventure story and frightening police procedural.
