Publisher's Summary

Leo Painter is the CEO of Earth Global, a large energy, mining, and real-estate development firm. He and his party of company executives are traveling in Botswana to consult with the government about accessing their extractable resources.

Sekoa is a male lion who shares with his bipedal enemies the misfortune of being the bearer of HIV/AIDS. Weakened by the disease, he loses his place as the alpha male in his pride and now, dying and harassed by a pack of hyenas, seeks only a place to rest in peace.

Painter, pursued by his own "hyenas", only wishes to find a last resting place where he can further his dream: to build a resort/casino on Botswana's Chobe River.

Their paths cross with tragic consequences as police, a plucky woman game warden, and myriad local authorities, hoteliers, and tribesmen vie over what happened and to whom.

Critic Reviews

"Ramsay's clever stand-alone shows the ruthlessness of the business and the animal worlds without resorting to gimmickry....Ramsay matches keen characterizations with an obvious affection for Botswana." (Publishers Weekly)
"A bit rougher-edged than Alexander McCall Smith's genteel No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, this mystery will still attract his fans and those who like Michael Stanley's Detective Kubu series." (Library Journal)
