    Special thanks to NetGalley and Skyhorse Publishing for Kidnapped On Safari, a book of gripping, non stop action The setting, both in Kenya and Tanzania seemed authentic, and I was pleased with the inclusion of a map depicting the various locations I felt that these areas were well known to the author This is the third book in the Mbuno Pero series The book works as a stand alone but reflects back occasionally to past events, friendships, and characters mentioned in Murder On Safari I am now interested in reading the two previous books in the series Pero is an American producer of documentary films but also works undercover for the CIA and some affiliated espionage agencies Mbuno is an expert East African guide, but also has many leadership skills which makes him indispensable to Pero The two men are friends and consider themselves brothers The story begins with a pleasant wildlife photography session in Northern Kenya for a documentary TV program Pero, wives and colleagues are interrupted in this work when they receive worrisome news Mbuno s adopted son nephew, Ube, has disappeared while guiding several photographers on Safari in a wildlife park in Tanzania Pero, Mbuno, and one of the men who had been on Ube s safari in Tanzania start out on a search and rescue mission to find Ube The others remain behind to keep in contact by radio and to edit the film On the rescue mission, the men learn that forests have been cut down to clear land which is being used to produce cocaine and that illicit gold is coming in from Siberia Tobacco crops are being sold to the Chinese The rescue of Ube is a riveting scenario where they must climb barriers and crawl through muddy swamps They find the drugged and comatose Ube in a compound of Boka Haram terrorists They also notice that about 30 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls are being held in the building Underlying all this is a possible coup to take over the Government of Tanzania If this wasn t enough action and heroic exploits, they decide with some volunteers, to hijack a train and return to the Boka Haram terrorist stronghold to rescue the kidnapped girls and return them to safety As I read, I thought what a compelling action movie could be made based on the rescue My reservations were with the complexity of the plot and its high number of characters It was not an easy read while there was so much thrilling, but complicated, edge of the seat action going on Recommended for those who enjoy an action packed story with likable, skilled protagonists.

    A clever and entertaining novel in an exotic setting what fo you want Few books set in Africa give such a detailed description of settings and language as this one, due to the extensive experience of the author in the field mainly as a documentary producer With an interesting plot and clearly described and motivated characters, this book betrays a writer very well at home in his craft The plot is clearly born out of the interest in and concern with Afrika and its future.

    While I haven t read the first books in the series, I feel you don t need to in order to read this one Well written and interesting except I just did not connect with the characters at all Thrillers aren t typically my thing but this was intriguing enough to try and I did enjoy it It just wasn t quite what I wanted 3.5 Rounded up to 4.
