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.

5.0 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A true Tony Park novel 6. Januar 2012
Von not a friend of the author - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
For those of you who have read Tony Park before, this book is another great story. As other reviews have said, it's obvious that he loves Africa and has a great knowledge of it's people and environment, and that shines through.

He also knows how to write an exciting story, with characters you connect with and a splash of edgy romance. Saying that, there is always a scene or two where you think 'this would never happen' or 'there is no way they'd survive this situation', but he's such a great story teller that you are willing to overlook it.

A great summer read.

The book is certainly readable, but rather old and yellowed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I loved it 3. Juni 2013
Von Dee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'd never heard of Tony Park until I got an invitation to my local book store to join him in the launch of his new book. I then Googled and researched to find out who Tony Park was and what kind of books he wrote. I'm glad I did because I've found a new author to add to my collection. The Delta is based in the northern parts of Botswana and Namibia and being someone who loves the bush, I can see the story unfolding as though it were in my back yard. A fast paced, on the edge of your chair read! It has a touch of action (or maybe more than a touch), a touch of betrayal, a touch of romance, a touch of sadness and a touch of reality!
