Big Jim held up his rifle and said, "It's in our nature to hunt."
James 'Big Jim' Peck is a highly-sought professional game hunter in Africa; but when a client is killed in a hunting expedition gone awry, he's forced to hang up his guns and retreat to his plantation during an ongoing investigation.
When a rogue Cape buffalo villagers believe is infused with an evil spirit terrorizes the territory, Big Jim agrees to track and kill the creature. With his trusted partner, Caesar Wilde, and American journalist Mary Watkins, they embark on a journey in the African bush.
After a series of inexplicable deadly encounters the hunters soon realize they are up against a creature unlike any other they have hunted, and it will take all their combined experience to kill it...or be killed!
Big Jim is replete with undercurrents of social change, wildlife management, and hunting politics and is a recommendation for readers who want more than a singular action novel. The 'you-are-there' action captures attention, but it's the interplay between reporter Mary, hunter Big Jim and his partner, Caesar Wilde, and the wider questions of African issues that capture attention and pose unexpected insights into Africa's special world. Big Jim presents a delightfully involving African saga for readers which explores so much more than the thrill of the hunt alone. - Midwest Book Review
"'Big Jim' introduced me to the Africa of the 1950s. It's filled with larger-than-life characters traveling across rich, beautiful African landscapes where death can strike in the blink of an eye. Readers will be left on the edge of seat as they travel on safari with a hunter facing off his greatest challenge."
- Matt T. Schott, Award winning Sci-Fi Author of "Lord Skyler and The Earth Defense Force"
