The wildlife safari team treks through East Africa on a rescue mission that pits them against Boko Haram in a thriller that will “chain you to your seat” (Bob van Laerhoven, author of Baudelaire’s Revenge).
 
Expert safari guide Mbuno and wildlife television producer Pero Baltazar are filming on Lake Rudolf in Northern Kenya when they receive the news: Mbuno’s son, himself an expert guide, has been kidnapped while on safari in Tanzania. Tracing the kidnappers back to an illegal logging operation, Mbuno and Pero uncover a vast criminal network run by the Nigerian terrorist organization Boko Haram.
 
Relying on Mbuno’s legendary bush skills, the pair face dangers both inside and outside the terrorist camp. But kidnapping and deforestation are only the beginning of this group's sinister aspirations. When Mbuno and Pero discover just how powerful and far-reaching the network is, they realize that rescuing Mbuno’s son could put the entire region at risk.
 
The third Mbuno & Pero thriller, Kidnapped on Safari is an “incredible page turner” ripped from today’s headlines (Mona Houghton, author of Frottage & Even As We Speak).

The Wall Street Journal #1 bestselling author Richard Bard, who entertained fans with his wildly successful Brainrush thriller series, now unleashes the heart-pounding series finale in a two-book ride that will take your breath away.

Jake Bronson’s family and friends are mourning him. They’d watched as he sacrificed himself so their lives could return to normal. But normal wasn’t to be. The megalomaniac whom Jake had killed during his suicide assault left a legacy of videos that damn Jake and everyone associated with him, leading to a price being put on their heads, dead or alive. They go to ground, unaware their every move is being tracked by a new breed of young, tech-savvy jihadists about to unleash vengeance on America’s homeland—with Jake’s family and the unsuspecting citizens of Los Angeles in their crosshairs.

As the jaws of the terrorist trap begin to close, Jake’s eight-year-old son, Alex, faces a threat of his own. He carries a burden only his lost father would understand. A journey that begins as he follows in his father's footsteps leads him to a group of terminally ill orphans. One of their siblings has been abducted by child traffickers. Alex can’t ignore their cry for help, and the unlikely alliance of youths embarks on a nothing-to-lose rescue mission that has little chance of success – all while unearthly visions demand his attention.

But the bloodthirsty outcry against Alex’s family and friends reaches beyond those who wish them harm, as do the visions that reveal their dark secrets to Alex. Help is on the way…

An “international thriller with soul.” Ideal reading for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Marcus Sakey, Michael Grumley, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

















The rooftop reception on the skyscraper in
lower Manhattan is an elegant affair right up until the moment the murders
occur. With the lives of sixty-three of his friends and business associates
snuffed out in one horrifying blink of an eye, the wealthy and enigmatic
Jonathan Strickland boards a dangerous roller coaster ride of a lifetime in
this clever, nail biting who-done-it.



Following the nebulous clues left behind at
the scene of the crime, Strickland finds himself kidnapped and taken to a
clandestine meeting in the middle of the Syrian dessert beneath the ancient
ruins of one of the oldest civilizations known to man. The lines between good
and evil blur as the suspect list narrows. Strickland races against time to
find the invisible killers who have even more carnage in mind; they call their
sinister plan the Joshua Effect.



Strickland also struggles with the essence of
a life thrown into question by the gnawing epiphany that he is losing the one
thing which actually gives his existence meaning. All of his fantastic
achievements pale when compared with the desire to possess the love of the one
woman who can understand him - but who can never be with the man he is.



As the clock ticks relentlessly forward to a
catastrophe of truly Biblical proportions, the hunt for those responsible nears
its climax. From a brazen gun battle among the rich and famous in the exotic
streets of glamorous Miami Beach to the discovery of the secretive Catskills
hideaway of a reclusive scientist in upstate New York, the thrilling ride never
lets up.



All the while the personal war inside
Strickland rages on. Who is he? More importantly, who will he end up becoming?
For a man who thought he had everything, why does he suddenly find his life so
empty?



For Jonathan, the revelation that a life with
nothing in it worth dying for isn't much worth living shakes the very core of
his being. Then why does it feel so right? The Joshua Effect is a taut,
suspense filled page turner with a stunner around every corner.
