Synopsis

The final book in the quartet of The Ballantyne Novels by Wilbur Smith, The Leopard Hunts in Darkness is a taut tale of the internal struggles of a fledgling nation.

Craig Mellow, acclaimed author but unhappy exile, seizes the chance to return to Zimbabwe when he is given a spying mission for the World Bank. Accompanied by beautiful photographer Sally-Anne Jay, he is at first unaware of the dangerous currents of tribal conflict that swirl below the calm surface of Zimbabwean politics. Then he stumbles upon a highly organized ivory-poaching operation which masks the treacherous plot to sell the country he once fought for into slavery . . .
