The action begins with a wedding in a chapel beside an African river. Elephants are the proverbial uninvited guests, as are the lions which arrive a little later, while crocodiles lie in menacing wait in the muddy African river. Throw in a kidnapping and a courtroom drama and the suspense will keep you turning the pages.
The mob are trying to take over, illegally if necessary, a Big 5 Game Reserve near an international border to use as a staging point to smuggle wild animal parts and diamonds out of South Africa and drugs in. Mo and Jack must now do what they do best, and that is put a spoke in the bad guys wheel.
Jack Delaney and his sidekick, Moses, Mo, Dhlamini, prosecute in court both, poachers and smugglers, while in their free moments they track kidnappers and escaped prisoners across the South African bushveldt on the Big 5 Game Reserves. Visits to imprisoned gang Leaders and clashes with mob hit-men are all part of a days work.
Excerpt from WHO TAKES THIS WOMAN
From CHAPTER 43
Piet stood in the yard of the customs post at Beit Bridge, carefully hidden behind a pile of packing cases the customs officials were busy inspecting, scanning the faces of everyone who stood in the queue at the passport control. It was most unusual for the officials to carry out such an inspection in such a public place. But Piet had impressed upon them the importance of apprehending Jonas Banda. Hed also impressed upon them the need for him not to be seen as the prisoner and murderer would take flight at best, or at worst resort to violence and then still take flight. Hed warned the customs officials that Banda was a very dangerous criminal who had murdered and would not hesitate to kill again if he saw a chance to escape. The customs officials were, of course, law enforcement officers in their own right, and trained to deal with difficult situations, but were quite happy to leave a murderer to the police and merely act as backup.
Piet himself hardly noticed the heat, despite the sweat running down under his armpits, as he watched intently as each newcomer entered the queue. Every now and then hed let his eyes wonder slowly up to the front of the line as he re-assured himself that the wanted man had not managed to escape his intense scrutiny. He even scrutinised the women standing in the queue, some of them breastfeeding, as he had no doubt that the man was a master of disguise.
As his eyes now wondered back along the line to the front he suddenly saw an old tramp who really stood out from the rest of the travellers. He was dirty and unkempt, looking as smelly as he probably was. What caught his attention though, and stood out as a sore thumb, was that the man had just removed his passport from his filthy carry-bag and the document was in pristine condition. Piet allowed his eyes to travel up the length of the tramps body to the mans head.
A smile magically appeared on Piets face as he cautiously left his hiding place and moved towards the tramp.
