Historical

From the author of Chameleon comes this historical fiction novel, Mark of the Leopard, the second in the African history series, a story of romance, mystery, danger and betrayal set against a backdrop of wild lands and raging seas. In 1703 Sabrina Barrington and her children are shipwrecked and presumed drowned off the Cape of Good Hope, the site of the present-day city of Cape Town.

Fourteen years later, an investigator tells Sabrinaís brother, Lucien Castle, that one of his sisterís children has been seen on the island of Madagascar, off Africaís east coast. It is imperative to return the youngster to England before his twenty-fifth birthday, otherwise his grandfather, the corrupt and detested Robert Barrington, will usurp his rightful inheritance. Castle is the only one who can confirm the young man is not an impostor. In order to do this he must leave the comfort of Amsterdam in Holland and embark on a journey into the unknown.

Will Castle be able to overcome his demons and find his nephew in time? Or will he succumb to the perils that beset his epic expedition every step of the way?

In a voyage that takes them from the untamed island of Madagascar to the storm-tossed Dutch outpost at the Cape of Good Hope, Castle and his companion must face innumerable dangers and battle not only rival investigators but also each other.

Re: Mark of the Leopard

This sounds like a good historical read. I know very little
about Madagascar and always like to learn.

This a second message. After I posted this morning I saw the
program, Land of the Lemurs of Madagascar on the NatGeoWild
channel. I never knew there were so many kinds. Interesting
watch.

Thanks, Leona. I so enjoyed writing the book and doing the research. As you say, there are so many different kinds of lemur. Madagascar is a fascinating place.
