Description

IN THE JUNGLE NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM - American movie star Scarlett Cox and her husband, hotel tycoon Salvador Brazza, head to Africa to get away and resuscitate their ailing marriage. When robbed of their money and passports, they seek help from the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam on the very day Al Qaeda chooses to bomb it. In an eyeblink they are taken hostage and whisked across the border deep into the Congo, one of the last truly wild places left on earth.

Battling terrorists, deadly wildlife, and cannibalistic rebels, Scarlett and Sal must find a way to survive in a violent, primeval world. And the only person who may be able to save them is the assassin sent to kill them.

    This book kept me hooked from start to finish. I didn't stop to take a break till the very last word was read. Absolutely incredible. I haven't read anything like this in a long time. A thriller that wasn't just action, it has everything you'd want and more. Loved it
  • Thoroughly entertaining

    From Icebergs123
    This is my first venture in reading a book by Mr. Bates and while it is not a literary masterpiece, it is certainly entertaining and I can barely part with it until it is done. The progression of the story is fast, sequential, engaging and full of twists although I find the resilience and resourcefulness of the central character hard to believe. The ending, I find, is too abrupt although this is purely subjective as I do not want the book to end.
  • Great read!
