FIRST PRIZE FOR FICTION, LOS ANGELES BOOK FESTIVAL. "A stunning tale of love and loss amid a magnificent wilderness and its myriad animals, and a deadly manhunt through savage jungles, steep mountains and fierce deserts as an SAS commando tries to save the elephants, the woman he loves and the soul of Africa itself."

With Africa's last elephants being killed for their ivory, Kenya rancher and ex-SAS officer Ian MacAdam leads a commando squad to hunt down the poachers. Pursuing them through jungled mountains and searing deserts he battles thirst, solitude, terror and lethal animals, only to find they have kidnapped a young archaeologist, Rebecca Hecht, whom he once loved and bitterly lost. McAdam embarks upon a desperate trek to save not only Rebecca but his own soul in an Africa torn apart by wars, overpopulation, and the slaughter of its last wildlife.

An intense memoir of humanity's ancient heartland, its people, wildlife, deserts and jungles, and the deep, abiding power of love.

"One of the most realistic portrayals of Africa yet." - YAHOO REVIEWS... "Sheer intensity" - KIRKUS... "A gripping thriller." - LIVERPOOL DAILY POST (UK)

About the Author

M I K E B O N D is the author of nearly a dozen best-selling novels, a war and human rights journalist, ecologist, international energy expert and award-winning poet. He has been called "the master of the existential thriller" (BBC), "one of America's best thriller writers" (Culture Buzz), "a nature writer of the caliber of Matthiessen" (WordDreams), and "one of the 21st Century's most exciting authors" (Washington Times). He has covered wars, revolutions, terrorism, military dictatorships and death squads in the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Africa, and environmental issues including elephant poaching, habitat loss, wilderness survival, whales, wolves and many other endangered species. His novels place the reader in intense experiences in the world's most perilous places, in dangerous liaisons, political and corporate conspiracies, wars and revolutions, making "readers sweat with [their] relentless pace" (Kirkus) "in that fatalistic margin where life and death are one and the existential reality leaves one caring only to survive." (Sunday Oregonian). He has climbed mountains on every continent and trekked more than 50,000 miles in the Himalayas, Mongolia, Russia, Europe, New Zealand, North and South America, and Africa.
