Lucas Mellor is a Texan whose business of brokering exotic automobiles for his upscale clients doesn't permit as many safaris as 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.

These accounts of shooting birds and hunting big game mostly relate the author’s adventures in North America--Canada and The United States. Game species encountered, or hoped to encounter, include mule deer, whitetail deer, blacktail deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, bear, turkey and geese. But by convenience, and necessity because all his hunts don’t fit neatly into the confines of North America, and the author had no other place to tell a couple of unique hunt stories, this volume also includes reports of dove hunting in Honduras and red stag in Spain. Mainly, this collection tells the story of one hunter who just happened to be a writer and whose job sometimes required him to go hunting, making him, if not a PH (professional hunter) then perhaps a PTPH (part-time) or a SPH (semi). Either way, for him it was a dream job.

Three separate women with separate stories; all with guns, all with a mission. Marlene as “The Husband Hunter” had a husband but couldn’t keep him, but found him after years and a global search, and then didn’t want him . . . alive. Veronica simply was misguided; her sole and desperate interest was protection of her family against imagined evils, but she was set straight following a neighborhood encounter where “The Streetwalker’s Price” was a life-preserving lesson. “A Gun in the House” offers a sense of security and comfort, and protection against intruders, but Constance testifies not all the threat comes from outside the home.

In the case of “The Diamond Exchange,” that task is clandestinely transporting a priceless collection of precious jewels clustered in gold as well as enshrouded in a country’s turbulent history. Rincon escorts the national treasure from Europe to South America and back, all in the course of his dangerous but highly rewarding duties.

Detective Eddie Harper sometimes is too good a cop for his own good. He sniffs out crime where the evidence doesn’t exist; that the assessment of his Lieutenant. When Harper gets the feeling that a sea-going funeral service is into more than simply scattering ashes for grieving families, and his Lieutenant orders him off the investigation, Harper ignores the order. Going undercover on his own, he uncovers not only clandestine disposal of kidnap and murder victims, but drug trafficking as well, all under control of a beautiful woman Harper would prefer to hold in bed instead of in jail. Once again his superiors have to embarrassingly admit that while Harper sometimes flaunts their orders, it always turns out well for the Galveston Police Department.

ASSASSINATION SAFARI. An American becomes embroiled in Africa's racial politics when he's recruited as a hitman by his Afrikaner professional hunter who is leader of a white supremacist group in post-Apartheid South Africa. The killer's first assignment is to assassinate a young activist, himself an Afrikaner but philosophically opposed to the old-guard Afrikaner society, but the hitman also kills the activist's black friend who's in the wrong place at the wrong time. The murders are secretly observed and the witness, a black woman, and her friend, a crusading Afrikaner newspaperman, combine resources in an attempt to cause the assassin's downfall.
