Will Staples: Animals

This is the world of endangered animal poaching. It’s a terrible world, and haunting. And in this world insurance investigatior Randall Knight and Kruger National Park ranger Cobus Venter converge.

Venter turns vigillante after two Kruger rangers are killed. Knight is on the verge of discovering a virus that could turn into a deadly pandemic.

Their perilous journies will lead them thru Southeast Asia and Macau, on a trail dangerous to their bodies and souls.

All of this, all of it, is due to greed and corruption for a market where people believe that rhino horn and tiger parts, can heal them or improve their sex life.

This international thriller by Will Staples includes a forward by Damien Mander an anti-poaching activist and founder of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF).

Animals is a poignant, intense and painful reveal of the depth and depravity of poaching, positioned in a fantastic crime fiction read. Highly recommended.
