I can now answer my own question! I bought African Dawn the other day at Estoril Books, Fourways Mall. I'm on my way to KNP for 10 days and looking forward to a good read while there (when not seeing spectacular game).

Been off the forum for a while - busy writing - but thanks, Ils, for the comment, and yes, Threedogs, Bev Harper's books are great. I never met her, but know her son well and have corresponded with her husband - good people.

Just finished reading' Dark Heart'.

I have to say that after reading Tony's first three or so books and initially really enjoying them, I had some disappointment in the next one or two. I can't remember which title was the catalyst but I spat the dummy and said 'nope, not reading any more of these'. I thought the characters got a bit flakey, the storey line silly or the plot predictable and the breathless women annoyed me no end.
Then I gave things another go with African Dawn and I loved it. Read it in a lodge in Bilene in Mozambique and left it with the manager there! So my SO gave me Dark Heart for Christmas. About two or three chapters in with the first 'breathless' scene I had to put the book down in a fit of pique and decide whether to go on or not. (From a woman's perspective I think male authors are hopeless at writing sex scenes - men might think they're good but in my book shop the female readers agree that they are so obvious, literal and clunky) Anyhoo, I got past my impatience with that and pretty soon I was engrossed in the book. Finished it this afternoon and the verdict is: well worth reading - IMHO. :thumbs_up:

Hello all, just checking back in after a busy quite-a-while. Hope all is well and I'm very much looking forward to getting back to RSA very soon, with visits to Kruger, Kgalagadi and other parks planned for this year.

Thanks all! I've been off busy writing and editing. Just going through final edits on the 11th one, due out this October/November. Heading back to SA in May to write another one.

Hi Tony
We go to Kruger each year in Oct/ Nov for a month plus. We load our Kindles up with everything we can find about Africa. There's nothing like reading about Africa while sitting in a bush camp in Africa. Due to the length of our stays space is everything. It would really be nice to see more of your material available in the Kindle format :clap: :dance:

leervis,
There are lots of Tony's books, but they are not available for the Kindle - I think ekoppen was requesting Kindle editions. We have found that having books on the Kindle (and/or ipad) saves tons of weight in the luggage.

I have all of Tony's books on my Android tablet - and I bought these through Amazon US not Aus.

Can't wait to read Tony Park's latest book - The Hunter. I've asked Father Christmas to bring it to me.
