Only a reality TV producer and an expert safari guide can stop a terrorist attack.

Every adventure starts at the fringes of civilization. For expert safari guide Mbuno and wildlife television producer Pero Baltazar, filming in the wild of East Africa should have been a return to the adventure they always loved. This time they’d be filming soaring vultures in northern Kenya and giant sea crocodiles in Tanzania with Mary, the daughter of the world’s top television evangelist, the very reverend Jimmy Threte.

But when a terrorist cell places them in the crosshairs, there is suddenly no escape and they must put their filming aside and combine all their talents to thwart an all-out al-Shabaab terrorist attack on Jimmy Threte’s Christian gathering of hundreds of thousands in Nairobi, Kenya.

MY RATING (out of 5)


If you are looking for your next intense read, Murder on Safari is definitely it.

From the brooding start, through the vivid middle and to the action-packed finish, Murder on Safari is a thrill-ride that suspense lovers are sure to enjoy.

Vivid descriptions of Eastern Africa truly bring the book to life, and it is obvious the author’s experience producing various wildlife documentaries in Africa lend to the setting’s authenticity. The setting is not just backdrop here; it is another character entirely and the rugged beauty is in the spotlight here.

I would say it is more of a slow-burn than an all-out thriller, though there are plenty of thrills and epic adventure to keep readers satisfied.

The interesting characters and their desperation to not only escape their pursuers but to foil a potential terrorist attack make this a must-read for those looking for an escape to a colorful, far-off world.
