Pressestimmen

“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

Kurzbeschreibung

Ex-soldier turned mercenary Sonja Kurtz just tried to kill Zimbabwe's president. Now a fugitive, she returns to Botswana's Okavango Delta.

Wildlife presenter 'Coyote' Sam is about to fall prey to a killer crocodile, when Sonja rescues him. Together, they investigate the dam-building project threatening the Delta's existence.

Sonja's mercenary commander calls upon her expert skills once more. Far from escaping her past, Sonja plummets deeper into the lethal web of violence. Where she came to find peace, she finds war.

HASH(0x970aa774) von 5 Sternen makes me want to go to Africa! 2. August 2011
Von Cloggie Downunder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Delta is the 7th fiction novel by Tony Park. Once again set in Africa, the main character this time is a female mercenary, Sonja Kurtz. After an attempt to assassinate the President of Zimbabwe goes wrong, Sonja escapes to Botswana. There she intends to look up her first love, Stirling Smith, at the safari lodge he still manages. Against her better judgement, her boss, Martin Steele, involves her in a plot to help the Caprivi Liberation Army and to blow up the newly-constructed Okavango Dam which appears to be destroying the Okavango Delta. Throw into the mix American actor "Coyote" Sam Chapman and his World Wildlife film crew, and you have a great story.
I was interested to read and review this book for several reasons. I have read other books by Park, but the main characters have always been men, so I was interested to see how he dealt with a woman in that spot (very well!). I was also interested because it was set in Botswana. I am a very big fan of a particular series by a male author, also set in Botswana, where the main character is also a woman. Alexander McCall-Smith manages to portray Precious Ramotswe and Grace Makutsi so well in his No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series that readers could be forgiven for thinking the author was female. This book, however, is a world away from that series!
Park's dialogue is authentic, the descriptions are highly evocative, the plot has plenty of twists and turns, and the characters are quite believable, although many are not what they first seem. There are some delightful turns of phrase. Park even manages to have the reader sympathetic with a hired assassin! There is lots of action, quite a bit of violence and an exciting finish with a laugh-out-loud last line. Park's first-hand knowledge of Africa is evident in every line of text and his love of the African landscape and many of her people is very obvious. Unlike James Patterson's superficial offering, "Cross Country", Tony Park's books make you want to go to Africa to experience it for yourself. I am looking forward to his next work, African Dawn.

HASH(0x973a1834) von 5 Sternen A Wild Ride Through South Central Africa 14. Februar 2015
Von Fairbanks Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The Delta by Tony Park is a novel filled with action, violence, and a dollop of sex that is set in an exotic locale. Sonja Kurtz is a mercenary working for Corporate Solutions in Africa. She grew up in the region and left when her alcoholic father struck her. Now she's back working the morally ambiguous space between the conflicting demands of corporate development in the form of a dam that will bring water and electricity for mining and agriculture, at the same time destroying the ecology of the delta, the interests of tourism and safaris, and the various and incompatible tribal interests. Throw in a reality television show being shot in the region, two of Sonja's former lovers, and betrayal by persons unknown. Add to this the sexy but clueless star of the tvtelevision show, Coyote Sam, and you have a made for the movies thriller.

The action doesn't stop and violence abounds. Threats are made against Sonja's teenage daughter. Sonja is shot, kidnapped, and meets her father who has quit drinking and seeks to make amends. He is now aligned with the tribal group that opposes the dam. The plot keeps getting thicker. The Delta is a real page turner and fun to read. You learn about south central Africa, the various tribal interests, along with its political and natural history. I'll enjoy reading more of this author's work.

HASH(0x972bf474) von 5 Sternen A Superb Action Out-of-the-Gate Start/Overall, It's A Winner for the Reader 7. September 2014
Von R. A. Barricklow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Superb out-of the-gates action sequences laced with intelligent tactical acumen.
Sonja Kurtz, mercenary-for-hire has been double crossed on the African barren farmlands of Zimbabwe at five in the morning. She is now on-the-run with possible danger around every turn. She's going to get out of it without spilling all of blood. The writing: action sequences; the intelligence imparted to the reader in tactics, strategies, military-hardware; the lay-of-the-land in its geography and people; all of it, and more, spell a good read indeed for the reader.
There is the backdrop of a Dam being built that is chocking the life out of its downstream Okavango delta. There is the crew of a wildlife documentary making a film about the delta & dam being built. All of it; coming together in a highly explosive, entertaining, & informative yarn. One that is all too real in its politics, economics, and implied industrial strength unfairness.
Halfway through I saw where the story was heading and started speed reading. For me, a mainstream-type-formula had taken control & structure away from the serendipitous type signature writing that shadows reality.
Still, the superb beginning actions sequences, well drawn characters, and knowledgeable backdrop, were well worth the ride. Add-in the story around the dam, its consequences if built, and the reader has a clear winner in his or her hands.

HASH(0x974dcf00) von 5 Sternen The Delta... 7. August 2015
Von John B. Goode - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I haven't read the other reviews but I suspect some of them will be in the same vein. I'm/have been a great fan of Wilbur Smith. For those who haven't read his books, he's an African author with an extensive career of writing fiction/action books based in Africa. Some of them have been made into movies (one I remember vividly is Shout at the Devil). The books are vivid, well written, with romances, fantasies, thrillers and combinations of all three. What I liked about him best was that his books portrayed and showed us an Africa that only an old African hand could. Sadly, after many years of great fiction, I felt that his last books did not meet his earlier standards and I stopped reading his new books.

I've been waiting for a successor to Smith and Tony Park is it. The Delta combines many of the elements that made Smith's books bestsellers: well written, colorful characters, lots of action and most of all, full of African intrigue. This one is based on the Okavango Delta, a real life locale with current real life intrigue. And added to that intrigue is that the story is based in Namibia, a mostly little well known country previous named German South-West Africa. The characters are inserted into a realistically written scenario and we follow along. If I hadn't know any better I might have thought this was a Smith authored book. The only tiny nitpick I have is that the books doesn't flow as smooth as Smith's best written books and the storyline is a bit less exciting. No matter, at 465 pages it is quite epic and I will definitely check to see if Tony Parks has any other books and read them. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9768e05c) von 5 Sternen A fast-paced African adventure 27. August 2014
Von Vickie T. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The action in The Delta starts with a bang, then takes off running and never stops. The book is an easy read and flows smoothly. The characters are described well, as is the African setting. The main character, Sonja, is interesting and easy to root for. And, it was a treat to read an action-adventure novel in which the standard strong, silent, tough guy hero was replaced by an equally strong, silent, tough gal heroine.

Another thing that I appreciated about The Delta is that the author managed to surprise me several times with an unexpected twist or revelation that, once revealed, made perfect sense (i.e. the good kind of surprise, not the kind that leaves you scratching your head and wondering where that came from).

I stayed up late several nights reading this book. I hope that the publisher plans to release all of Tony Park's book to the US market, as I'm definitely interested in reading more of his work.
