African Dawn by Tony Park, the author of Red Earth, is a full-throttle international thriller that will engross fans of Clive Cussler.
It's darkest before the dawn.
Three families - the Bryants, the Quilter-Phippses and the Ngwenyas - share a history as complex and bloody as Zimbabwe itself.
Dedicated conservationists Paul and Philippa Bryant are struggling to save their farm and small herd of endangered black rhinos from seizure by corrupt government minister Emmerson Ngwenya. Twin brothers, ex-soldier Braedan and environmentalist Tate Quilter-Phipps join the fight.
But when the brothers fall in love with the same woman, Natalie Bryant, their rivalry threatens to put the lives of all involved at risk. And with Emmerson vowing to stop at nothing until he gets what he wants, a bloody showdown seems inevitable.
In the broken country that is Zimbabwe, only the strongest can survive.
