Jade Del Cameron is on an assignment in the northern territory of Mount Marsabit to photograph elephants. Before long Jade runs into ivory poachers. She also makes friends with a local Kikuyu boy but when he is captured as a slave Jade embarks on a rescue mission.

I am all gung ho with Jade, but even from the safety of my arm chair I cannot envisage taking on a gang of poachers in the 1920's. Wow!

Although in an earlier adventure Jade was being pursued by one Harry Hascombe, she has to date keep her distance, but in this adventure she meets Sam Featherstone and from the look of things she may need his help, but will this wilful intrepid heroin accept help from a mere male?

It's again a gripping adventure. I understand that there are six in the series, I am already eagerly awaiting episode three. Highly recommended.

Stalking Ivory is the sequel to Mark Of The Lion and was first published in 2007.
The story is set in British East Africa - now Kenya- in the 1920s and features the heroine of the first novel Jade and her friends Beverly and Avery Dunbury on a photography assignment in the northern territory of Mount Marsabit. They are capturing on film elephants and they come across the mutilated remains of four elephants and one kneeling man.
The authorities suspect that it is the work of Abyssinian ivory poachers and slave traders but Jade is not convinced. When Jade finds a cache of German rifles hidden in a nearby cave the plot thickens.
With the help of handsome US pilot Sam Featherstone Jade sets out to locate a missing local boy and bring the villains to justice.
This is an interesting adventure with elements of intrigue and humour and romance set in an unusual location. There are several scenes which make humorous reference to how the Tarzan novels are completely wrong in there depiction of Africa as just being a jungle.
Jade returns in book three of the series The Serpents Daughter.

The character of Jade grows on you and by the end I could well consider reading the next book to see what she got up to. The author has researched her era and area which is interesting- British East Africa, now Kenya. Description of the characters and environs would have been nice to really help you visualise and engage you more;it was all a bit sparse style wise. However, as the audience is young adults I am guessing the idea is to create an "easy read". I skipped a fair bit at the start but settled down to it more at the end, despite guessing the outcome of the villain of the piece. A nice touch at the very end. Atmospheric.
