內容簡介

Karen Hartley is a charismatic agent in the British Secret Intelligence Service. She and her fellow SIS agent, Fiona Mossop, are assigned to investigate and expose a powerful syndicate operating between England, South Africa and Far Eastern Countries engaging in illegal poaching of rhino horns, elephant tusk and lion bones “sets”.

Mark Warner, a South African banker, wildlife conservation writer and documentary maker is also a SIS agent in Africa, and becomes involved when his daughter Annabelle suggests recruiting Karen Hartley to investigate and hunt down the heads of the syndicate after his wife, a passionate ecologist and anti-poaching campaigner, is murdered whilst researching the slaughter of black and white rhino in the Kruger National Park.

Karen and Fiona use their intellect and skill to track down a syndicate operating in a private game reserve where a large number of rhino are still to be found. The syndicates use poor local Mozambican males who risk their lives being lured over the border and with machete in hand, to hack the horn off rhino be it dead or alive, revealing the lengths they will go for sexual gratification, power and greed, pushing the price of rhino horn to an alarmingly high commodity, more expensive than gold, diamonds and heroin.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Christine Farrington, the author of this story, was born in 1943 and grew up in Manchester, England. She trained in accountancy and worked as a goldsmith jeweller before embarking on a course in law, criminology and forensic auditing. She then joined the Special Investigation Service of British Government and was sent to South Africa to investigate and uncover a rhino and elephant horn-poaching syndicate.

In 1987, Christine left the SIS and moved to South Africa and became Financial Director of a Montessori School and Educational Trust in Cape Town. This also enabled Christine to become an Ambassador for the last remaining Bushmen of the Kalahari. Her love of sailing and racing yachts culminated in her becoming the first female Commodore of False Bay Yacht Club in Simon’s Town. During this time, she sailed across the South Atlantic in The Governor’s Cup Race to St. Helena.

Christine is currently writing her next novel, drawing extensively on her experiences of African life and culture.
