Alex Tremain is a pirate in trouble. All he really wants is to reopen his parents' five-star hotel on the Island of Dreams, off the coast of Mozambique. But instead he's facing a mounting tide of debt, his crew of modern-day buccaneers is getting restless, and he has just been dumped by not one, but two women. As if he doesn't have enough on his plate, a chance raid on a ship then sets the Chinese triads after him and, to add insult to injury, corporate lawyer Jane Humphries lands, literally, in his lap. Before he knows it, Alex is embroiled in two separate and equally risky pursuits one takes him to South Africa's Kruger National Park and will pay enough for him to reopen his hotel, and the other involves the love of a lifetime. Can Alex pull off this one last heist and walk away with both prizes?

This is a physical action packed thriller, the sort I read only for a change. Get past the military and maritime details in the hijacks and ambushes for a smart British double crossed plot in a booty search that reveals South African society with remarkable realism. Shame a little sadistic torture and too much ammo were added, probably for sales. The novel's intrigues and elephants are far more memorable.
