Overview

Ndlovu – The White Elephant is a pacy story set in Zimbabwe during the turbulent years that followed Rhodesia's Unilateral Declaration of Independence. The story highlights the dangers of police work in the explosive climate of a troubled country during years of the terror war and is woven around human suffering, painful endurance, and horrors that confronted the peoples both black and white. The narrative is loosely based upon the author's own experiences in the police force of what was then Rhodesia. Thus the action of his story is set against an authentic background which the author experienced and the impeccable writing style gives a palpable vividness to the events.
A retired ex-police constable, commits murder, he flees the country but has now returned as a leader of a 'terrorist gang', he is on a diabolical mission, he is wily and ruthless but he has one fear–a reoccurring dream in which he is crushed and gored by an elephant.
Tony is a police officer determined to track down a cunning and callous murderer ... will he succeed and live up to his name ... NDLOVU–The White Elephant?
The author has succeeded in producing a narrative with great feeling, what sets this work apart from any other similar books is the remarkable attention to detail. Not only is there the skill with words that paint a picture, but there is also an incisive insight into the characters–brought to life with vivid description and credible dialogue. From the way the author creates scenes and characters, captures the atmosphere of the moments and the emotions of the protagonists –there can be no doubt of the author's real involvement in the events recorded.

About the Author

Peter Good was born in Kenya. He was educated in Kenya and later Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. His childhood years were spent with his parents, brothers and sister in the isolated mining and farming areas of Kenya, and it was here that his fondness for the bush life and wild animals grew.
In 1959 his parents moved to Southern Rhodesia (now known as Zimbabwe), where he joined the British South Africa Police Force. He spent his entire service in the Matabeleland Province. He served as Public Prosecutor in the local Magistrates Courts for five years. It was whilst at the district stations, in Matabeleland province, that he learnt the customs and language of the local populace, even joining them in their beer-drinks - something that won their respect. This paid off during the troubled times of terrorist activity.
He came to England in 1977, where he has remained since, but still regards Africa as his home.
This is his first story, drawn from an idea based loosely on actual events witnessed during his police career and on other incidents, both experienced and heard, during his life in a changing Africa.
