Publisher's Summary

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....

Another great adventure from Tony Park

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.

Amazing book

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.

Terrible narrator

Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Davis’s performances?

If a narrator must act out the dialects get a local narrator. His accents were terrible and downright spoiled the story.

Another Terrific Tony Park Novel

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

In a heartbeat. Park brings Southern Africa alive with his storytelling.

What did you like best about this story?

Generally, the setting. Southern Africa seems so exotic, with wild animals and people from a wide mix of backgrounds.

What about Mark Davis’s performance did you like?

Perfect narrator for Tony Park

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - too long. But very hard to put down.

Absolutely nail biting stuff !!!

First I've ever read of Tony Park and probably one of the best books I've ever read. Very well researched and twisting turning story line.
Quite frankly knocks the socks off Wilbur Smith and I've read all of his...
