The hunt begins ...

A volatile Zimbabwe and the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo are the battlefields for a deadly game of cat and mouse in Africa's wildlife wars.

Canadian researcher Michelle Parker jumps at the chance to visit the famed mountain gorillas, but she is wary of the man offering it - professional big-game hunter, Fletcher Reynolds.

Fletcher represents all Michelle's fought against - the slaughter of animals for material gain - but she is reassured by his apparent support for the stamping out of poaching.

Ex-SAS officer Shane Castle has been recruited by Fletcher to spearhead the anti-poaching campaign. Shane has seen what bullets can do - to both human and animal - and makes Michelle start to doubt the choices she has made ...

Fans of David Baldacci, Wilbur Smith and Ken Follett will love Tony Park.
