Dark Heart

by

Tony Park

2014

Dark Heart was my first Tony Park book…but not my last.  I love the plot and central characters.

Made also more enjoyable as I was able recognise many of the South African towns mentioned in the story. My mental picture, of towns and national parks, made the book come alive.

Written in 2012 it is probably the most recent of his books and I have some others on my listening list.

2017
Must confess to re-listening to Dark Heart only because it was still on my iPod and for the first third of the story there were only snippets which triggered déjà vu thoughts in my memory. As the story progressed I began to remember more of it and enjoyed as much the second time around as I did the first.

I still rated Dark Heart as a four star experience and recommend it to anyone who has been in and around Kruger National Park. Whilst not all the story is located in that area there are many mentions which had me thinking ‘I have been there.’

Dark Heart has all the necessary features to make it a good read and maybe even a good movie.  Wildlife poaching, civil war, romance, some really bad dudes and a good guy who just happens to be an Aussie, are all integrated into a fast paced story.

I read several of Tony Park’s novels after my initial reading of

Dark Heart and enjoyed each one.

I think

(David Cavanaugh #5)
by

Sydney Bauer

Four school friends leave school and are now, a wealthy US Senator (Chris), a lawyer (David), a Priest (Mike) and the fourth (Marilyn) remains Chris’ lover throughout her adult years.

When Chris is accused of Marilyn’s murder old friendships are rekindled as David endeavours to defend his friend. However, their partnership is severed when the David discovers the litany of lies being told by David and his family.

An unlikely discovery of evidence proving Chris’ innocence brings David back to defend Chris only two weeks before the trial is to begin.

A suspended career cop, who was working for the prosecution, is David’s closest ally.  Together they work tirelessly to find the real killer while an arrogant prosecutor is doing his best to obstruct any further investigation into the case believing that he has the real killer on trial.

Can the real killer be exposed before the end of the trial?

And can you pick the end of this story?
