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 Sabrina’s
brother, Lucien Castle, that one of his sister’s children
has been seen on the island of Madagascar, off Africa’s 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

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

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.
