When investigative journalist and dedicated preservationist Nick Hunter dies from a scorpion sting on his isolated cheetah preserve in northeastern Kenya, Jazz Jasper feels that a remarkably clever murder has been committed. Especially when she learns that the lethal specimen is an imported Sahara scorpion not indigenous to the region.

The search for the truth about Nick's death leads to an exclusive white suburb of Nairobi. From there, Jazz embarks on a sweeping adventure that takes her into the desert, to a Saudi hunting camp, and into a mountain cave where present-day Africans live as they did thousands of years ago. For Jazz it is a journey from which there may be no return....

This is a personal review of Karin McQuillan's CHEETAH CHASE. I have read this book and other thrillers of Ms. McQuillan and recommend them to potential readers. Reflecting Ms. McQuillan's awe of the immensity and fragility of Africa (she was a Peace Corps volunteer there for 8 years), we readers are guided into an appreciation of the sweep of Africa and the need to preserve the wildlife -- for the sake of all mankind. At the same time we are propelled into the adventures of Jazz Jasper, the irrepresible, fearless, and delightful heroine of all of Ms. McQuillan's books. For me her books are page turners! I eagerly await Ms. McQuillan's next book as soon as it appears in print.
