Into the Lion’s Den

by Martin Chimes

South African businessman Ben Novak is trying to ease into peaceful retirement in Australia after the loss of his soul mate, Dahlia, when a cryptic but threatening phone call made from his son Josh’s phone shatters his plans.

Josh has vanished whilst in South Africa and Ben, believing that he is in deadly peril, has no choice but to jump on the first flight back to his homeland. As Ben struggles to uncover the mystery of Josh’s abduction, violence from his past in this beautiful but cruel country rears its head once more. Will any of his old comrades come to his aid? Could one of his old enemies be behind his current torment?

If so, Ben is ready. He is no stranger to brutality and is prepared to save his son at all costs. Even so, nothing can prepare him for what he will discover on his journey into the lion’s den.

A fast paced action thriller of love, loyalty, revenge and an indomitable will to survive in the face of  implacable malevolence.
