by Crocker, Gareth

An African adventure set on the border between South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Escaping an England crippled by The Great War, twin brothers Edward and Derek Hughes head to South Africa. Inspired by their late father's diary, they intend to help save the country's dwindling elephant population from savage poaching that has placed them on the brink of oblivion. Soon after their arrival they discover a rare female Desert Elephant – an animal believed by many to be a myth – following an ancient ghost trail to Bechuanaland. But the matriarch is being pursued by relentless shadows – a black light even more murderous than the war. To save her, the brothers will have to journey into the darkness. Gareth Crocker, a former journalist, lives with his wife and two children in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is his second novel. Gareth Crocker is the author of the international bestselling Finding Jack. Crocker's debut novel, Leaving Jack (re-published as Finding Jack in 2011 by St Martin's Press), has achieved several firsts. Not only has Gareth become the second South African author ever to have his work selected by Reader's Digest Select Editions in the United States (the first was Alan Paton for Cry, the Beloved Country), but the condensation has been translated into multiple languages in more than a dozen countries.
