I read the book and enjoyed it very much. The hollow elephant tusk on the cover reminds of a bullet hole, which is the backdrop to this action/romance - the elephant poaching trade in Southern Africa and a bad vs good guys' battle of wits and bullets. This book is for the reader who likes a fast-paced, from-the-get-go book that gets one hooked. In other words 'Operation Zero' moves like an action movie. If you like a bit of romance thrown in, there is some in it too. Guy meets girl, but he is first drugged and hunted by the FBI plus high-powered mercenaries before they meet again. This is a novel for male and female, young or old, alike. Personally, I like character development in a novel. Not disappointed here, in fact the hero, Daniel Hoffman, is quite sentient. Which makes the story true to life. Lastly, this can be discussed at a book club in terms of its very important comment on the African-ivory trade, the role of gun mercenaries and long-running African corruption. It is great to read a story based in the USA as well as in Southern Africa other than a Wilbur Smith offering. In fact, this writer compares very well with Mr. Smith, being from South Africa too. This is David Strauss's first novel, way to go! I will definitely read another offering by him. He has got the goods and also a great name for a writer! Keep a look out for this new author, hopefully there is a sequel to this Daniel Hoffman saga.
