Edward Lincoln is a worldwide celebrity who plays impossibly daring detectives on the big screen, but in reality he is an ordinary man currently stuck in an extraordinary spot. Nerissa, his ailing godmother, had pleaded with him to travel to South Africa to investigate whether someone was tampering with her racehorses. He could not refuse her. Once there, Lincoln is overwhelmed by autograph hounds and high suspicions. And when sudden perils cross his path and murder makes a horrific appearance, Lincoln, the actor-turned-investigator, is plunged into a plot of gold, greed, and gilded lives. He ultimately realizes that the only way to uncover the killer is to give not only the performance of his life, but a performance to save his life.

From the Back Cover:

Edward Lincoln had scaled the Himalayas, survived deadly car chases, defeated scores of assassins. As a film action man he’d even suffered stoically at the hands of sadistic directors.

After finishing his latest film, he’s asked to visit South Africa to discover why a dying friend’s horses are suddenly doing so badly on the race track. Unfortunately, this attempt to help a friend soon puts Lincoln in harm’s way. From a nearly fatal interview to a dangerous mishap in a gold mine, it seems only luck is keeping him alive.

But fate has more in store. When the scene in the Kruger wildlife park begins to resemble Lincoln’s latest big-screen adventure, even he will wonder what comes next...

‘A wonderfully vivid and sinister conclusion in the Kruger National Park’ Sunday Times

Soon enough, he's plunged into a plot of gold, greed, and gilded lives that forces him to uncover a killer and give a bravura performance he'll never give again....
