“An all-action, old-fashioned, full-on boy's own romp from an author who is starting to challenge the veteran Wilbur Smith for the title of ‘master of the African thriller'… Break-neck in pace, with narrow escapes from death on every page, its charm is infectious.” ―Daily Mail (UK)
“Action-packed… love, betrayal, and myriad plot twists keep this story moving a mile a minute. Southern Africa is brought to life with detailed description of people, animals, and the wild yet beautiful landscape….A thriller that will make your heart race as you find yourself immersed in the struggle for survival.” ―Library Journal (starred review)
“A fast-moving thriller starring a female mercenary in a great setting, along with violence and a dollop of sex… Don't expect damsels in distress in this novel. Do expect a thrill ride that won't disappoint.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[An] ambitious African thriller... Park excels at capturing the wilds of the continent, as well as its political and commercial pressures.” ―Publishers Weekly
