Overview

Blair Underwood Presents: From Cape Town with Love (Tennyson Hardwick Series #3) by Blair Underwood, Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes

THE AWARD-WINNING AUTHORS OF CASANEGRA AND IN THE NIGHT OF THE HEAT TEAM UP FOR A THIRD TIME TO PRESENT FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE, A TENNYSON HARDWICK NOVEL.

Actor-turned-detective Tennyson Hardwick has solved two high-profile deaths in Hollywood, but nothing has prepared him for a race to save a child’s life.

Tennyson’s past in the sex game cost him his new girlfriend, and he brings her to Cape Town, South Africa—a scenic film destination and playground for the rich—to try to win her back. There Tennyson is hired as a bodyguard by superstar Sofia Maitlin when she visits an orphanage to adopt an African child.

Months later, Maitlin offers Tennyson one of Hollywood’s hottest tickets—a job as a bodyguard at adopted daughter Nandi’s A-list celebrity birthday party.

But the party is over before it begins. When Nandi’s birthday goes dreadfully wrong, it’s up to a guilt-ridden Tennyson to save a child’s life and reunite a Hollywood family.

But how? He can’t go to the police, the FBI has threatened to arrest him, and Big Brother is monitoring his telephone calls.

To find Nandi, Tennyson will have to rely on tips from his father—a retired LAPD captain—and a mysterious woman from his past, Marsha, who has already proven she can’t be trusted. His strongest lead is a deadly knife fighter known only as Spider.

When his search for the missing child crosses Marsha’s covert investigation into a criminal gang with ties to South Africa, Tennyson knows that finding Nandi might cost him his freedom—or his life.

The combination of a thin plot, increasingly unlikable and vain lead. character, and obvious disdain for woman have worn me out. I'm finished with this series.

Hardwick, Tennyson Hardwick. Who far outweighs James Bond, baby! Within this novel you will continue to witness the evolution of a solid MAN. A problem solver who acts, as Marsha states. Oh, who is Marsha, you ask? Pick up Cape Town and find out. She's a real piece of work! If you thought you loved Hardwick before, as he pushed along and did his thing in Casanegra and In The Night of The Heat, Cape Town will infinitely seal you to him as his layers peel back and boundaries are removed to reveal the core of who he is. A very loving person. The 3rd tale of this series often filled me with emotion considering there is an innocent victim at the heart of the story that only Mister Ten can save, but it means riding a mighty chaotic wave (April) in the process, so hold on fellow readers. Ten's really got to dig in and transform to make this happen, but hope floats. With that said, the dynamic writing of Due and Barnes presents a harrowing adventure that vividly places you alongside Tennyson as he loves, loses, fights and triumphs that simply can't be missed. Plus we get to vicariously visit some really beautiful and exciting places through the strokes of the authors' pens that we may never set foot on in real life. Enjoy! p.s.

It has been said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Someone clearly has never told Tennyson Hardwick this because from the moment he steps foot on the soil of South Africa -- majestic, beautiful and the place where the rich and famous pay mighty to get as close to God's beauty on earth as possible -- the hero we all love to love finds out just where his good intentions take him. He's there to win back the love of his life, the only woman who managed to tame the heart of the gigolo turned actor turned private detective. It's the latter that drove April away after she watched him solve two high-profile Hollywood murders while at the same time barely escaping with his own life. So instead of just licking the wounds of his broken heart and falling into the first bed he could find, which is easy when you are a man like Ten, he heads to South Africa on a mission to get his girl. But soon into the trip, he finds himself guarding a Hollywood A-list actress when she visits an orphanage to adopt an African child. That successful trip puts him on the speed dial of superstar Sofia Maitlin and garners him another gig serving as a bodyguard at her adopted daughter's birthday party. It was supposed to be an easy day, guarding a pampered American princess who was being celebrated by Hollywood royalty. But like Tennyson always finds out, good intentions lead to no where but hell. Next comes a kidnapping that puts Ten right in the middle of a web of lies, espionage, danger and uncertainty that only he can escape. And, this time he has someone else who needs him more, a beautiful little girl's life hangs in the balance. If you thought Casanegra was good and In the Night of the Heat was better, than not picking up From Cape Town with Love is not even an option. Join Ten on his latest case, where he falls back on what he knows and teams up with a mystery woman from his past that is supposed to help him with what he doesn't know. Don't skip a page because you are going to want to be there for every single word. After all, it just keeps getting better.

Actor and detective Tennyson Hardwick has solved two high-profile deaths in Hollywood, but nothing has prepared him for a race to save a child's life. His past in the sex game cost him his girlfriend, and he travels to Africa to try to win her back. While in Africa he's hired as a bodyguard by superstar Sofia Maitlin for her visit to an orphanage to adopt an African child. Months later, Maitlin hires Tennyson as a bodyguard at her adopted daughter Nandi's birthday party. When Nandi goes missing at the party, Tennyson is in for the race of his life to save Nandi's life and bring her home safely to her parents. Not being able to go to the police or FBI, Tennyson is left to his own tactics and the help of his father, a retired LAPD captain, and a mysterious woman from his past, Marsha, who has proven she can't be trusted. When his search for Nandi leads him to a deadly African gang, Tennyson now realizes he is in a fight for his life. With danger lurking around every corner, this suspenseful, action packed novel is a page turner that is hard to put down. Use of the African culture paints a clear picture, allowing the reader to be fully immersed in the culture of that majestic country. With an intricate plot and well developed characters, this novel is sure to please lovers of suspense. I was a little apprehensive about reading this because I did not read the other two novels in the series but I can say that I was not lost in the story and would recommend this book even if you have not read the others.

Suspenseful, exhilarating and sexy. From Cape Town with Love will leave you on the edge of your seat as once again Tennyson Hardwick has found himself in another mess. This page turner will have you holding your breathe as the intoxicating actor/bodyguard Ten deals with love, family, work and his own mortality. If ever there was a book made for the big screen, this is it. The trio of authors do an excellent job helping us to visualize the beauty of South Africa, experience the roller coaster of emotions from the characters all while reminding us that everyone is vulnerable. Although reading Casanegra and In the Night of the Heat is not required, I strongly encourage doing so in order to fully appreciate the authors development of the characters. It has been a pleasure taking these adventures with Tennyson Hardwick and I look forward to more.
