Amid a dreadful rainstorm during his annual South African walkabout, Jake Logan stops to assist a woman in distress named Hope Wentworth—and is threatened by a dirty cop for his troubles. Told to leave town, or else, Jake decides it’s best for his tight schedule to move on.
But something is definitely off about the small town of Belfast, and when Hope explains what she thinks is really happening, he offers to stay and help her fight.
It doesn't take long for Jake to realize that Belfast is a whites-only enclave with a segregated African township. But after he uncovers the town’s dirtiest secret, Jake knows he’ll need the trusted skills of his old Special Forces buddy, Peter Steinhobel, to face the psychotic police chief—who has a penchant for feeding bothersome people to crocodiles.
The second thriller in author Mark Claassen’s series featuring Jake Logan, Hope’s Edge plunges into the dark underbelly of drug smuggling, ivory poaching, and the issues that lurk just under the surface of post-apartheid South Africa.
Can Jake, Peter, and their new African comrade help Hope defeat a man who thinks arson, kidnapping, and murder are just the means to an end?Biografía del autor:
