Kenya, 1961. As a small plane carrying Nathalie Nelson lands at a remote airstrip in the Serengeti, Nathalie knows she’s run just about as far as she can from home. Trained as an archaeologist, she has fought hard to be included in a team excavating ruins in Kenya, her first opportunity to escape England and the painful memories of her past. But before she can find her bearings, the dig is surrounded by controversy - and murder. In a country on the brink of crisis, nowhere and no one is safe. As a growing attraction to Jack Deacon, famed explorer, becomes a passionate, reckless affair, Nathalie is faced with a decision that will shape her life forever....
After two hours of listening I just had to give up on this book.
The setting was interesting and the plot line had promise. Unfortunately, the characters were weak, the pacing dragged and the dialogue was horribly stilted. And the amount of repetition just gets old after a while. The reader does not have to be constantly reminded what issues the exceptional and wonderful heroine Natalie has.
Going by the book summary, this should have been a great book but it turned out to be disappointing.
