A freelance journalist is dragged into a deadly investigation when researching an article on rhino-horn smuggling in South Africa. An unputdownable new thriller from the authors of the critically acclaimed Detective Kubu series. 'The perfect combination of "I don't want it to end" and "I can't put it down". Great African crime fiction' Deon Meyer 'My favourite writing duo since Ellery Queen' Ragnar Jonasson 'Compelling and deceptively written' New York Journal of Books _______________ When freelance journalist, Crystal Nguyen, heads to South Africa, she thinks she'll be researching an article on rhino-horn smuggling for National Geographic, while searching for her missing colleague. But within a week, she's been hunting poachers, hunted by their bosses, and then arrested in connection with a murder. And everyone is after a briefcase full of money that may hold the key to everything... Fleeing South Africa, she goes undercover in Vietnam, trying to discover the truth before she's exposed by the local mafia. Discovering the plot behind the money is only half the battle. Now she must convince the South African authorities to take action before it's too late. She has a shocking story to tell, if she survives long enough to tell it... Fast-paced, relevant and chilling, Dead of Night is a stunning new thriller that exposes one of the most vicious conflicts on the African continent... _______________ 'Promising series launch...an entertaining page-turner. Readers will look forward to the sequel' Publishers Weekly 'From Minnesota to South Africa to Mozambique to Vietnam, Michael Stanley's Dead of Night is an extraordinary tale of the extreme measures taken to combat international poaching and smuggling' C.J. Box 'As dark as the darkest of Nordic Noir' Yrsa Sigurdardottir 'A wonderful, original voice' Peter James 'Impossible to put down' Library Journal
