Do you like Africa, suspense, mystery, danger and a unique cast of characters? Kidnaped On Safari is the story of Pero, a wildlife TV show producer on set in Africa when his Safari guide, Mbuno learns that his son has been kidnapped. Pero has been through many harrowing adventures and when he decides to help Mbuno rescue his Safari guide’s son, they have no idea what they’ll be stepping into.
Two of the gentleman on the safari that Mbuno’s son was kidnapped on arrive back and explain that they were on the safari to take pictures of the wildlife. Pero wonders why someone would want to kidnap Mbuno’s son, but after enlarging the photos Pero realizes there’s more involved then it appears.
This novel is short, but action packed. I like how each chapter is written in the native tongue of the country where the novel takes place, plus the African characters speaking in their native language I think is a great authentic touch to the story. I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but thankfully Pero explains some of his past adventures.
I received my complimentary copy of Kidnaped On Safari by Peter Riva from Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., care of FSB Associates. The views are mine and of my own choice. After a previous thriller book I think I’ve determined I’m partial to psychological thrillers, though if you enjoy more tame thrillers then Kidnaped On Safari may be a great pick.
