In a luxury private safari lodge in Kruger National Park, Detective Sergeant Tom Furey has just woken to a protection officer's worst nightmare. The VIP in his charge, British Assistant Minister for Defence, Robert Greeves, has vanished. Knowing his career is on the line, Furey vows not to stop until Greeves is found - dead or alive. He and his South African counterpart, the attractive Inspector Sannie Van Rensburg, go against official orders and start the search for the suspected band of terrorists through the outer limits of the National Park to the coastal waters of Mozambique. Tom must assume nothing, trust no one, the silent predator is about to pounce. Torture, pain and death are thrown into the mix with sex, scandal and love, set against the huge, wild landscapes of Southern Africa.
