Guy West spent his early years in Kenya during its last years as a British Colony. He brings his first hand knowledge to bear in this exciting and timely tale concerning the murderous activities of elephant poachers, who are still slaughtering hundreds of these endangered creatures for their ivory, in spite of all the measures taken to put an end to their cruel trade.

This is Guy's first foray into the realms of fiction but he is no stranger to the written word, having gained an international reputation as an expert on antique firearms and, along with his brother Leo, has written and illustrated numerous magazine articles as well as three books, all published by Woodfield.


by Guy West
A gripping adventure novel set in Kenya focusing on the illegal activities of ivory poachers and those who work to thwart them.

The bloody trade of ivory poaching lies at the heart of this gripping adventure novel by internationally-known antique arms expert Guy West.

Set in the famous Masai Mara region of Kenya in East Africa, it follows the fortunes of a world-weary, middle-aged war correspondent on the rebound from a failed relationship taking a sabbatical from his journalistic career to make a nostalgic return to Africa, where he had spent his childhood and formative years.


On the plane to Kenya he is seated next to an attractive young woman and is instantly drawn to her. Unfortunately, on landing she is met by her boyfriend and his hopes of a potential romantic liaison are dashed.

But they are destined to meet again – in less than ideal circumstances – out in the open on the plains and on the run from a murderous gang of ivory poachers. He must call upon everything he’s learned in the war-torn battlezones he has reported from, in a fight to the death to save himself and his beautiful companion, and perhaps win her affections in the process...
