Publisher's Summary

A woman's quest to save wildlife turns lethal.

A very eager - and rather naive - Australian lawyer, Kerry Maxwell, flies into South Africa to volunteer at a wildlife orphanage run by notorious vet Graham Baird. 

Graham is as jaded and reckless as Kerry is law-abiding and optimistic. When Kerry arrives at the animal sanctuary it's to the news that Graham is imprisoned in Mozambique following a shootout with elephant poachers. In the gunfight he killed the brother of corrupt politician and poaching kingpin Fidel Costa. 

Kerry's earnest sense of justice takes her to Massingir to help Graham with his case and into a world of danger. Kidnapped, chased, attacked and betrayed, Kerry learns the bitter truth about the complexities and deadly nature of the war on poaching. 

Even the motivations of well-meaning charities, wealthy donors and private zoos are not all they appear. 

Kerry's perilous entanglement may be what Graham needs to shake off his drunken cynicism and rejoin the fight for Africa's animals, but is it enough, and in time, to stop Costa's quest for revenge?

I’ve listened to every Tony Park book until Captive (new narrator). Couldn’t get past first chapter, please change narrator!
