In a luxury private safari lodge in Kruger National Park, Detective Sergeant Tom Furey has just woken to a protection officer's worst nightmare. The VIP in his charge, British government minister, Robert Greeves, has been abducted. Knowing his career is on the line, Furey vows not to stop searching until Greeves is found - dead or alive. He and his South African counterpart, Inspector Sannie van Rensburg, go against official orders and start the hunt for the kidnappers through the outer limits of the national park, to the coastal waters of Mozambique. Increasingly drawn to Tom, Sannie can't resist involving herself in his dangerous mission, even risking her job to help him.
