Description - The Delta by Tony Park

After a failed assassination attempt on the president of Zimbabwe, ex-soldier turned mercenary Sonja Kurtz is on the run and heads for her only place of refuge, the Okavango Delta in the heart of Botswana. She's looking to rekindle a romance with her childhood sweetheart, safari camp manager Sterling Smith, and desperately wants a fresh start and to leave her perilous warrior lifestyle behind. But Sonja discovers her beloved Delta is on the brink of destruction. She is recruited as an 'eco-commando' in a bid to halt a project that will destroy forever the Delta's fragile network of swamps and waterways. Soon Sonja finds herself caught in a deadly web of intrigue involving Sterling, the handsome Martin Steele, her mercenary commander, and a TV heartthrob and wildlife documentary presenter 'Coyote' Sam Chapman, who blunders out of the bush in a reality show gone wrong. Instead of escaping her violent past, Sonja is now surrounded by men who are relying on her killer instincts to save the day. Where she came to find peace, she finds war...and it is not just the survival of the Delta that is at stake.

Book Review: The Delta by Tony Park - Reviewed by (29 Sep 2011)

Wow. This was my first adventure into a Tony Park novel and I find it utterly thrilling and found myself hanging on every word in the story. This is not my usual reading preference so was unsure how I would go reading it but could not put it down. The words and characters are inspirational and quite interesting. The main characters in the story are absolutely fantastic as Parks imagery makes you feel you are walking along side them in the story. The spectacular descriptions are not at all florally but capture the beauty of the African countryside crisply and generously. This is one book that will keep your attention throughout and your interest peaked.

Book Review: The Delta by Tony Park - Reviewed by (15 Jul 2011)

The Delta is the 7th fiction novel by Tony Park. Once again set in Africa, the main character this time is a female mercenary, Sonja Kurtz. After an attempt to assassinate the President of Zimbabwe goes wrong, Sonja escapes to Botswana. There she intends to look up her first love, Stirling Smith, at the safari lodge he still manages. Against her better judgement, her boss, Martin Steele, involves her in a plot to help the Caprivi Liberation Army and to blow up the newly-constructed Okavango Dam which appears to be destroying the Okavango Delta. Throw into the mix American actor “Coyote” Sam Chapman and his World Wildlife film crew, and you have a great story. I was interested to read and review this book for several reasons. I have read other books by Park, but the main characters have always been men, so I was interested to see how he dealt with a woman in that spot (very well!). I was also interested because it was set in Botswana. I am a very big fan of a particular series by a male author, also set in Botswana, where the main character is also a woman. Alexander McCall-Smith manages to portray Precious Ramotswe and Grace Makutsi so well in his No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series that readers could be forgiven for thinking the author was female. This book, however, is a world away from that series! Park’s dialogue is authentic, the descriptions are highly evocative, the plot has plenty of twists and turns, and the characters are quite believable, although many are not what they first seem. There are some delightful turns of phrase. Park even manages to have the reader sympathetic with a hired assassin! There is lots of action, quite a bit of violence and an exciting finish with a laugh-out-loud last line. Park’s first-hand knowledge of Africa is evident in every line of text and his love of the African landscape and many of her people is very obvious. Unlike James Patterson’s superficial offering, “Cross Country”, Tony Park’s books make you want to go to Africa to experience it for yourself. I am looking forward to his next work, African Dawn.
