Safari guide and private investigator Hudson Brand hunts people. He's on the trail of Linley Brown, a young woman named as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Linley's friend Kate is believed dead following a car crash in Zimbabwe, but Kate's sister believes that she is still alive - and needs Linley to give her answers. But Linley doesn't want to be found. South African detective Sannie van Rensburg is also looking for Linley. But her priority right now is a murderer. The killer could be a safari guide, and Hudson Brand is top of her list of suspects. Sannie and Hudson cross paths as they track Linley from South Africa and Zimbabwe to the wilds of Kenya's Masai Mara game reserve. The hunt is about to turn deadly.

Under the African sun, the shadow of the past is never far away. During the Rwandan genocide, three foreigners - UN worker Carmel Shang, military doctor Richard Dunlop, and journalist Liesl Nel - were forced to stand by, powerless to prevent the massacre and unable to escape witnessing the horrors. 20 years later, scattered across the world, the wounds of Rwanda still run deep. Now, a tattered photograph that was clutched in the hand of a dying man holds a clue that brings them back together... and hides a secret that is making them a target of an assassin. Hunted through South Africa's Kruger National Park to Zambia, Australia, and back to Rwanda, the three must bring themselves to confront not just the scars of a nation and a continent, but of their own hearts.

Rhodesia, 1943. The body of parachute instructor and local celebrity, Felicity Langham, has been found brutally raped and murdered. The police have arrested the most obvious suspect, a black man named Innocent. But it turns out, he is. WPC Pip Lovejoy is convinced that there's more to this case than meets the eye, and is determined to obtain justice for the murdered woman.Paul Bryant, the Squadron Leader responsible for training RAF pilots, needs to find out why three aircraft have crashed in as many weeks. One of the pilots has been discovered killed by poisoned arrows, but there is no sign of his plane. When Pip and Bryant's investigations collide, a much more serious crime becomes apparent. The man behind it, Reitz, believes that if Hitler can cull the Jews, he can cull the blacks. Reitz and his team have discovered a poison so deadly that a single drop of it can kill a man in less than a minute. Their plan is to detonate this poison bomb during an RAF passing out parade, killing a thousand pilots. This in turn would likely lead to civil war in South Africa. Reitz's aim is to create an independent Afrikaner-controlled South Africa, and he doesn't care what lengths he has to go to achieve it.
