Book Description: 

Only a reality TV producer and an expert safari guide can stop a terrorist attack.

Every adventure starts at the fringes of civilization. For expert safari guide Mbuno and wildlife television producer Pero Baltazar, filming in the wild of East Africa should have been a return to the adventure they always loved. This time they’d be filming soaring vultures in northern Kenya and giant sea crocodiles in Tanzania with Mary, the daughter of the world’s top television evangelist, the very reverend Jimmy Threte.

But when a terrorist cell places them in the crosshairs, there is suddenly no escape and they must put their filming aside and combine all their talents to thwart an all-out al-Shabaab terrorist attack on Jimmy Threte’s Christian gathering of hundreds of thousands in Nairobi, Kenya.

My review:
This story takes place in the East Africa region. Pero Baltazar a television producer and his crew come to film the wild life but instead end up twisted and tied up in a  al-Shabaab terrorist attack.  There are quite a few twists and turns int he book and tons of suspense. The story for me started out a little slow but once it started moving it ran the rest of the way through the book. I did enjoy the descriptions of  East Africa though I could picture it in my mind. As a place I have never been, Reter Riva brought it to life for me.  
  I did listen to the audio version which is read by R. D. Watson. His voice is great for a suspense filled novel like this. I loved his slight accent. R. D. Watson was great at expressing the situation with just his voice. You knew when people were happy and laughing, when they were scared, and more. You also learned the different characters voices very quickly, each was unique in its own way.

Meet the author: 

Peter Riva spent many months over thirty years in Africa, many of them with the legendary guides for East African white hunters and adventurers. He created a TV series (seventy-eight 1-hour episodes) in 1995 called WildThings for Paramount TV. Passing on the fables, true tales and insider knowledge of these last reserves of true wildlife is a passion.
