Publisher's Summary

The final audiobook in the quartet of The Ballantyne Novels by Wilbur Smith, The Leopard Hunts in Darkness is a taut tale of the internal struggles of a fledgling nation.  

Craig Mellow, acclaimed author but unhappy exile, seizes the chance to return to Zimbabwe when he is given a spying mission for the World Bank. Accompanied by beautiful photographer Sally-Anne Jay, he is at first unaware of the dangerous currents of tribal conflict that swirl below the calm surface of Zimbabwean politics. Then he stumbles upon a highly organised ivory-poaching operation which masks the treacherous plot to sell the country he once fought for into slavery....

Not the best narrator.

Read this book many times in the 80s and 90s. Completely awesome. The narrator had problems pronouncing many words well known to fans and did his Afrikaner accent with a Scottish brogue, ugh!

Probably the best book I have read

If you live historical fiction, great series or books on Aftica, consider Wilbur Smith. This book best depicts the challenges of Africa, and builds on already superior series.
