Description
American adventuress Jade del Cameron has returned home to British East Africa, where her unconventional work as a female photojournalist in 1920 isn't enough to satisfy her restless spirit - or to save her from a native woman's dire warning to beware the madness in a killer's eyes.Jade's latest endeavor - helping the Perkins and Daley Zoological Company collect wild animals for zoos in the States - has her lassoing zebras, chasing down a rhinoceros, and posing as bait for a leopard. But the real danger begins when Jade's friends Madeline and Neville Thompson find the body of a local merchant on their coffee-growing plantation. Authorities determine the cause of death to be murder. Their prime suspect: Jade's beau, moviemaker and ace World War I flyer Sam Featherstone.To clear Sam's name. Jade launches her own investigation, questioning the dead man's partners at the mercantile, those tied to the man's estranged wife, and ranchers who did business with him. But nothing can prepare Jade for the journey that lies ahead, as she finds herself making an emergency landing in Sam's plane deep within the vast African wilderness, then risking the long trek back to Nairobi to confront more than one kind of brutal killer face-to-face.
