Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Botswana, well known to mystery fans as the setting for the Precious Ramotswe books, provides the backdrop for this story of human and animal intrigue. Leo Painter, an aging corporate mogul, brings his scheming company directors to a wild game resort to check out future opportunities. Interwoven throughout the human machinations is the parallel tale of Sekoa, a dying lion soon to be ousted by a younger rival. Ray Porter's clear, bold voice works well for the various American characters whose distinct personalities radiate arrogance, superficiality, greed, and duplicity. His intonation and inflection capably differentiate the various characters while managing to capture the treacherous nature of most of them. He is also adept with the soft, melodic African accents. Even though the listener quickly figures out who the villain is, the story is an enjoyable diversion. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
