About this title
When her twin brother, Joel, is killed in Nairobi while on business for their architectural firm, Cat Stanton heads for Africa to uncover the truth about his murder and uncovers a deadly cover-up that threatens her own life. Original.From Publishers Weekly:
With its taut plot, Brien's African thriller makes a suspenseful follow-up to her previous book, A Veiled Journey. Only weeks after the death of Joel, her twin brother and business partner, a cryptic note warns Los Angeles architect Cat Stanton that "nothing's what it seems to be." Cat immediately jets off to Kenya under the guise of completing Joel's work on a major hotel project there; actually, she intends to get some concrete answers about his final days from the safari company that led his expedition into the bush, where he was supposedly trampled to death by a herd of buffalo. Brien complements the solid cast of characters Cat encounters during her investigation (a brutal German poacher, flirtatious Australian hunters, natives armed with AK-47s and a suspicious priest) with mesmerizing action scenes and vivid descriptions of Africa's natural beauty and wildlife. Eventually, Cat's unwelcome questions uncover a world of political corruption, terrorist activity and greed that puts her own life in jeopardy. Cat's pursuit seems single-minded, but Brien adds depth to Cat by incorporating flashbacks to her childhood and memories of an abusive father. (Sept.)
