Summary The dark winter nights of Minnesota seem to close in on investigative journalist Crystal Nguyen as she realizes that her close friend Michael Davidson has disappeared while researching a story on rhino poaching and rhino-horn smuggling in Africa. Crystal, fearing the worst, wrangles her own assignment on the continent. Within a week in Africa she's been hunting poachers ("Shoot the bastards," she's told), hunted by their bosses, and questioned in connection with a murder―and there's still no sign of Michael. Crystal quickly realizes how little she knows about Africa and about the war between poachers and conservation officers. What she does know is she must find Michael, and she's committed to preventing a major plot to secure a huge number of horns... but exposing the financial underworld supporting the rhino-horn market is only half the battle. Equally important is convincing South African authorities to take action before it's too late―for the rhinos, and for Crystal.
