About the Author

Bestselling author, advisor to the US and foreign governments, human rights and war correspondent, award-winning poet and international energy expert,
Mike Bond has lived and worked in over thirty countries on six continents. 
 
His works have been translated into several languages and have been praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic for their intricate plots, fascinating
characters, extraordinary settings, and explosive pace.
 
 
Based on his own experiences in dangerous, remote, and war-torn regions, his novels look deeply into the dark side of man as well as the good. They mix
the terror and fury of battle and the intense joy of love, the vanishing beauty of the natural world, and the nature of the universe and its many meanings for
human life. His lean unsentimental raw prose, free of best-seller formulas and literary pretension, conveys through the lives of real people what it means
to be deeply alive, to hunger for a better world.
 
 
Dealing with political truths few else discuss, Mike Bond’s writings have been widely quoted by military experts, intelligence analysts, and political thinkers.
How do we live, his books ask, at the deepest level? How does evil masquerade as good? What are politics, government, and intelligence behind their many
masks? The secrets behind international deals, dirty wars, assassinations, and coups? How does one lead a good life and care for others in a world of danger
and evil?

A brilliant adventure story which feels, tastes, smells and despairs of Africa. How does an expat feel thousands of miles from home?Read this to find out. How does a hunter feel when he is being hunted ? The answer is also in this book. Mike Bond paints a brilliant picture of post colonial Africa where expats experience a multitude of conflicting emotions living in a country which is no longer "theirs" but which they love and are loath to leave. Superb.

I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, Mike Bond and Mandevilla Press in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I always enjoy Mike Bond. This is a gem of a novel, bringing us into and through parts of Africa with clarity and a sense of the heart of this country that we don't often see. The story itself is fine - a mystery well tempered and told. The jewel is the love of this world Mike Bond is able to share with us in and around his tale - the world that will not outlive us all unless we fight for change.

I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway - "The Last Savanna" by Mike Bond - Honest review, right? It was a very interesting story, full of prose and literary style; it felt more like a literature class required read. It was a very good book but a bit too pretentious for everyday reading.
