The Delta Paperback
by Tony Park
After a failed assassination attempt on the president of Zimbabwe, ex-soldier turned mercenary Sonja Kurtz is on the run.
She heads for her only place of refuge, the Okavango Delta in the heart of Botswana.
She's keen to forget her warrior lifestyle - it's time for an easy life. But then Sonja discovers that the Delta is on the brink of destruction.
She is recruited as an 'eco-commando' in a bid to halt a project that would destroy the Delta's fragile network of swamps and waterways.
Soon she finds herself caught in a deadly web of intrigue involving her ex-lover 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.

Fun to read, but the story got a bit off ground.
Review by dannN
The book started off well with immediate action and the promise of more to come. The setting covers Botswana and the Okavango Delta as well as Namibia and Caprivi Strip and deals with the proposed damming of the Kavango River which was proposed several years ago.There is a lot of action right through the book, but I found the fighting to be a tad implausible. The heroine who races through the bush in skimpy clothes and boots and can drive a bulletproof tank and fire the cannon, sounds somewhat like a comic book goddess.I did not think that this book was up to the standard of "African Dawn", but,nevertheless, I will continue to read Tony Park's absorbing novels.
