Simultaneous release of the eagerly awaited latest title from bestselling thriller writer, set in Mozambique and South Africa.
Guaranteed to appeal to fans of Wilbur Smith and Beverley Harper.
Alex Tremain is a pirate in trouble. The two women in his life - one of them his financial adviser, the other his diesel mechanic - have left him. He's facing a mounting tide of debts and his crew of modern-day buccaneers, a multi-national band of ex-military cut-throats, is getting restless. They don't all share his dream of going legit, but what Alex really wants is to re-open the five-star resort hotel which once belonged to his Portuguese mother and English father on the Island of Dreams, off the coast of Mozambique. A chance raid on a wildlife smuggling ship sets the Chinese triads after him and, to add to his woes, corporate lawyer Jane Humphries lands, literally, in his lap. Another woman is the last thing Captain Tremain needs right now - especially one whose lover is a ruthless shipping magnate backed up by a deadly bunch of contract killers. Meanwhile Jane finds herself torn between the crooked but charming pirate and her coolly calculating millionaire boss, George Penfold. Both are passionate, and both are dangerous. What Alex really needs is one last big heist - something valuable enough to fulfil his dreams and set him and his men up for life. When the South African government makes a controversial decision to reinstitute the culling of elephants in its national parks, Alex finds the answer to his dilemma - three tonnes of ivory.
Praise for Silent Predator (also available in audio from Bolinda) - "fraught with dangers and unexpected twists - unfolds at a satisfying pace." - The Age.
"Sassy and smart, but Africa always steals the show. Park knows and loves the bush, the animals and the people and it shows. Silent Predator is a page-turner and a great way to spend a winter evening, transported to somewhere warm and exotic." - The Independent Weekly
