PREY is an action-packed conspiracy thriller with a spine-chilling psychological thriller sub-plot; an enthralling female central character; and a climax that will leave you breathless.
Four murders. Four countries. All mutilated in the same macabre way.
A secret offshore bank account containing billions in the name of a shell company whose only two directors are a British Cabinet minister and a high school teacher from Soweto.
A trail of corruption and betrayal that leads investigative journalist, Olivia Wolfe, to the highest levels of the South African Police and the British Government, and puts her on a collision course with her old nemesis, D.S. Casburn of the Met's SO24 Global Threat Taskforce.
But Casburn is the least of Wolfe's concerns. Following evidence that leads her from South Africa to Zimbabwe, Olivia comes to the attention of the world's most powerful criminal syndicate, run by a man who will stop at nothing to protect himself and his political and corporate benefactors.
With governments in the balance and the survival of some of the most magnificent creatures on earth in her hands, can Wolfe stay alive long enough to expose this gruesome conspiracy?
On the sun-baked South African savannah, it's not just the truth that's being hunted.
