Lucas Mellor is a Texan whose business of brokering exotic automobiles for his upscale clients doesn’t permit as many safaris he would like, and so he becomes susceptible to a proposal to become a paid assassin. His recruiter, Danie Schwardt, is a professional hunter by trade but also the clandestine leader of a white supremacist organization, in post-Apartheid South Africa. Once reluctantly on board with the plan, enticed by hunting Africa’s most cunning quarry--man—Lucas stalks and studies his prey much as he would a trophy animal in the wild, locating where he roams and lays up and the confines of his territory. A subsequent assignment causes Lucas conflict; the intended target is a friend. Once again the hunter in Lucas must study his quarry’s habits and bring him to bag. He just didn’t count on the intervention by a determined investigative reporter. When one friend is marked as the intended victim, and another is exposed as the adversary, someone is going to be killed, but who?
