The black market feeds all appetites...
The dark winter nights of Minnesota seem to close in on
investigative journalist Crystal Nguyen as she realizes
that her close friend Michael Davidson has disappeared
while researching a story on rhino poaching and rhino-
horn smuggling in Africa. Crystal, fearing the worst,
wrangles her own assignment on the continent. Within a
week in Africa she's been hunting poachers ("Shoot the
bastards," she's told), hunted by their bosses, and
questioned in connection with a murder―and there's still
no sign of Michael.
Crystal quickly realizes how little she knows about
Africa and about the war between poachers and
conservation officers. What she does know is she must
find Michael, and she's committed to preventing a major
plot to secure a huge number of horns... but exposing the
financial underworld supporting the rhino-horn market is
only half the battle. Equally important is convincing
South African authorities to take action before it's too
late―for the rhinos, and for Crystal.
Michael Stanley, author of the award-winning Detective
Kubu Mysteries series, introduces an intriguing new
protagonist while exposing one of southern Africa's most
vicious conflicts in Shoot the Bastards.
