Product Description

Product Description

A volatile Zimbabwe and the jungles of the Congo are the battlefields for a deadly game of cat and mouse in Africa's wildlife wars.

Canadian researcher Michelle Parker jumps at the chance to visit the famed mountain gorillas, but she is wary of the man offering it, a professional big game hunter, Fletcher Reynolds. He represents everything that she has fought against - the slaughter of animals for material gain - but she is reassured by his apparent support for the stamping out of poaching.

Ex-SAS officer Shane Castle has been recruited by Fletcher to spearhead the anti-poaching campaign. Shane has seen what bullets can do to both man and animal. He makes Michelle start to doubt the choices she has made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping! 2 Feb 2014
By JulesS

Always on the look out for anything concerning Africa, I came across the Tony Park books so thought I'd give this one a go. Am I glad I did! I did wonder, at first, whether it was going to be my sort of thing when a little way in we found ourselves in Afghanistan, was it all going to be a bit 'boy's own'? But, no, it was to give background to the major character and I was soon lost again in the atmosphere of Sub-Saharan Africa. I can't recall the last book that had me so gripped by the story that I couldn't put it down, but at the same time, not want it to end.

I have downloaded more of Mr Park's books on to my Kindle and have no doubt that they will not disappoint. If you've never been to Africa you will still enjoy reading this; if you have fallen in love with the place then Tony Park is a 'must read'.

By AK TOP 500 REVIEWER

Safari is an action packed thriller spanning several countries in Southern Africa involving hunting, poaching and the 'darker elements' that could conceivably surround those activities. With most of the action happening in Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Kongo and plenty of firefights throughout, one may definitely get the impression that Park does a good Wilbur Smith style African thriller.

As most of his other books, there is a romantic story there somewhere, as well as an educational component informing of the plight of the continent in some form. Most of it will be pure action, though and one can only say that the author does a very good job of that aspect. On top of writing a well flowing text, the research is also properly taken care off, so you will not find howlers that would lessen the enjoyment of the book. The only thing that may shock certain readers is the topic chosen, which while fictional, could well be imagined to be true - and in that case pretty chilling.

In spite of the complicaion in the book becoming apparent fairly early on, I would also not say the telegraphing detracts significantly from the enjoyment you would derive from it. The only aspect one could criticise is that the author does not seem to build storylines around specific characters / families that would span several books (at least not on the basis of his work I have read so far). This means one off novels, which is not a problem per se but leaves a bit of room for maneuver, given that all his books deal with similar topics in largely the same geographical area.

Overall I can only recommend the book to readers who are both into thrillers and into Africa. Wilbur Smith fans will find an author, who while not quite at the same level as the old hand at his peak, certainly beats the last (apparently ghostwritten) efforts from him hands down.
