The Leopard's Prey by Suzanne Arruda
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Fourth in the series starring a larger than- life heroine far ahead of her time. (Denver Post).
American adventuress Jade del Cameron has returned home to British East Africa to help the Perkins and Daley Zoological Company collect wild animals for zoos in the States. But the real danger begins when the body of a local merchant is found on a coffee-growing plantation. Authorities determine the cause of death to be murder,and their prime suspect is Jade's beau, movie-maker and ace World War I flyer Sam Featherstone. To clear Sam's name, Jade launches her own investigation, but nothing prepares her for the journey that lies ahead, during which she'll have to confront more than one kind of brutal killer, face-to-face.
This book in the Jade del Cameron series took me a little longer to get into. The author is very descriptive in writing about Africa and the animals, but the action in the book tends to be drawn out.
Still an enjoyable read and a mystery that I did not figure out.
