Murder on Safari by Peter Riva

Experience the “Real Africa” the brochures promised… He got more than he ever dreamed.

4 out of 5

The narration in this, done by R. D. Watson was intense.  He has a very “horror” deep and mysterious voice (which I liked a lot).  The story was made more interesting with his narration voice.  Quality was great — no issues at all.

This was a gripping and exciting story.  You start, not sure what was going to happen — and when things start to play out you can’t believe what you are reading.  I enjoy a good thriller, and I’ve read a lot of stories that usually have a setting in Africa (A lot of Bio-Thrillers begin there).  But I’ve never combined to two.  I’m glad I did.  This book was raw and thrilling, and kept my heart racing through the night.

I like when an author can write different genres well.  You would never know that Riva also wrote a Science Fiction/Technothriller book (that I just reviewed recently).  After reading this, I will definitely be adding Riva to my list of “to read” authors.

I received this book from iRead Book Tours & the author for free in exchange for my honest review.

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.
