Former British soldier and current hired assassin Sonja Kurtz is on the lam after her failed attempt at killing the president of Zimbabwe. She heads home to Botswana's Okavango Delta, hoping to reconnect with her childhood love Sterling and leave her work behind her. But she's soon enlisted into a plan to save her beloved Delta, and the peace she had hoped for is nowhere to be found. Tony Park creates a thrilling scenario that Mark Davis performs with masterful control. His deep voice and brilliant sense of pacing only serve to build the tension and intrigue in The Delta.
After a failed assassination attempt on the president of Zimbabwe, ex-soldier-turned-mercenary Sonja Kurtz is on the run and heads for her only place of refuge, the Okavango Delta in the heart of Botswana.
She's looking to rekindle a romance with her childhood sweetheart, safari camp manager Sterling Smith, and desperately wants a fresh start and to leave her perilous warrior lifestyle behind. But Sonja discovers her beloved Delta is on the brink of destruction.
Soon Sonja finds herself caught in a deadly web of intrigue involving Sterling, the handsome Martin Steele - her mercenary commander, and a TV heartthrob and wildlife documentary presenter ‘Coyote’ Sam Chapman, who blunders out of the bush in a reality show gone wrong. Instead of escaping her violent past, Sonja is now surrounded by men who are relying on her killer instincts to save the day. Where she came to find peace, she finds war and it is not just the survival of the Delta that is at stake....

If you have never heard of Tony Park, you probably soon will. His novels are the 21st century answer to Wilbur Smith - full of larger than life, but relatable, heroes - and the narrators do a good job too. I just wish all of his other books were available as an audiobook. Very enjoyable escapism.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
For those who love Wilbur Smith style books this one is for you. What a fantastic story from begining to end. I just could not stop listening. The narration was also very good. This is the second Tony Park book I have listened to and it was better that the first.
If a narrator must act out the dialects get a local narrator. His accents were terrible and downright spoiled the story.
In a heartbeat. Park brings Southern Africa alive with his storytelling.
Generally, the setting. Southern Africa seems so exotic, with wild animals and people from a wide mix of backgrounds.
Perfect narrator for Tony Park
No - too long. But very hard to put down.
