The victim, Miranda Banks-Lewis, was their daughter, protegee and lover respectively.
Desperate to find out what happened to Miranda, Jed and Christine, with the help of a determined Australian journalist, set out on a perilous journey of discovery in Africa.

A superb successor to the best-selling Far Horizon, Zambezi is an unputdownable novel of love, loyalty, betrayal and revenge set against the magnificence and terror of Africa.
