This is set in the early 1980s, when it was written and reflects the post-independence turmoil of white people, especially farmers in Zimbabwe. It took a while to like Craig, the hero and also to believe that someone with a 1980s-style prosthetic leg could be quite so agile. Also, stretching it that Jay could be a pilot as well as a photographer. However, these plot conveniences didn't detract from the excellent story.

Craig Mellow, acclaimed author but unhappy exile, seizes the chance to return to Zimbabwe when he is given a spying mission for the World Bank. Accompanied by beautiful photographer Sally-Anne Jay, he is first unaware of the dangerous currents of tribal conflict that swirl below the calm surface of Zimbabwean politics. Then he stumble upon a highly organized ivory-poaching operation which masks the treacherous plot to sell the country he once fought for into slavery . . .

If you're a fan, what else do you need to know? If you're not just read any Wilbur Smith written before about 2015 to become a fan. They vary a little but even the worst is pretty dang good. Very recent ones though are only partly written by him at best, not the same! The only people who don't seem to like him are over sensitive or judgemental about the explicitness of the sex and violence, which admittedly is quite explicit. Realistic sex, violence, characters and history though, which is the emotional impact of this superb story telling.

I love Wilbur Smith books. Adventure books are my favorite. Tarzan and Conan stories were great when I was a kid. But as an adult I need more depth, reality, adventure, horror, love, diversity and Mr. Smith gives me that. Craig Mellow is back, the dope haha. A good guy but a real slapdick, kind of like a few guys I know. Deeply flawed and deeply human. The setting is post colonial Zimbabwe 1980's. I grew up in the 1980's. The events and time were never discussed in NY State public schools. So it's incredible to find out while I was practicing nuclear bomb drills in the hallways of my school that Matabele kids were being butchered by their neighbors.

This is a story that is very difficult to put down, it is not like it is one story, it is like every facet is a story in itself and is followed through action and nail biting suspense to the conclusion of it's individual fact. It is an easy book to read with a beginning a very varied middle and an end. It swings from looking at the different political views of different races and people and their leaders from good to bad. This is one story that has to be read I cannot do it justice in this review but it kept me reading from beginning to end. This book gets five stars from me only the second review I have done to get that amount. My thinking is if only giving four it always gives the author something more to strive for but this book gives it's all and deserves the five stars. A very good read it has action suspence political intrigue and with all Wilbur Smiths books stunning descriptions of Africa from it's scenery people and animals.

If a writer is talented and good enough, and if he is also a little lucky as well, then he or she and get the reader to clearly see and feel the storyline in the mind's eye with all of the human drama, action, color, and depth that was carefully meant to be there. Wilbur Smith does just that and more painting grand and sweeping African canvases and getting the rest of us touring along the exhibits.
Yeah, I'm a big fan of his writings and this one in the Ballantyne series is another great story or should I say, stories, because Smith always has several lines going with each book that neatly and comfortably tie together.
As some have suggested in their own reviews here Smith's fictional characters are always thrust into the historical drama of Africa (in at least three centuries!) going over the politics, prejudices, economics,and wonderful strengths and human weaknesses of all of those involved. Better yet, he gives us strong characters that we feel we come to know, at times like, or maybe even shake our heads at, or genuinely fear, and again, he paints a broad canvas with enough minute detail and artistic color to get us 'seeing' it as well.
Smith is an African who loves his homeland enough to take us on a guided tour through often troubled tales and with fiction impresses and educates those of us with only a surface understanding.
I see you too, Wilbur Smith and you are a man of men.

As always, I could not put the Kindle down. The story keeps you in suspense. You think you know how it's going to turnout and something else comes up. Like I always say when I've giving my review, as soon as I hit submit the next book will be downloaded.
Enjoy,

Craig Mellow lost a leg and a legacy in Africa. Zimbabwe's richness, her people, land and wildlife race, to call loudly through his blood. The Leopard Hunts In Darkness is a novel that kindles adventure, stirs the imagination and lights fires within. Battle torn, bone weary, the struggles continue. Greed gnaws to erupt into inhumane violence. Men lose their will to live, and then their lives. Wilbur Smith knows Africa, and weeps, or rejoices flor the mindset. He weaves plots as intricate as his vast subject land. Excellent. Mind and imagination stirring. Recommend highly.

First as ALWAYS read Mr. Smith's works in sequence, whether it is the Ballantine, or Courtney, or Egyptian Series. The enjoyment factor improves along with the understanding of the awesome tales that the author is telling.

I have read everything that Wilbur Smith has written, twice now, and in my opinion he is the best of the epic story tellers writing in the English language. He out writes H. Rider Haggard. He outdoes Michener by giving the reader the feeling that he... then you... are not only there, but part of it all. From sex to violence to lol humour. This is one fine writer.

THE LEOPARD HUNTS IN DARKNESS is somewhat different in tone and approach from most of Mr. Smith's work, as it starts out slow never quite boiling just simmering for a lot longer than my nerves liked, but then he found the loud-pedal, and it rockets off at a breath taking pace, that leaves one panting and gasping for air. One fine read.
Wilbur smith is an excellent author and this is one of his good ones. What ticks me off is Macmillan has published or republished these books. You can buy any one of them in a thrift store for a dollar with no typos. Macmillan is charging $8.99 (which is outrageous) and I have never seen so many typos. I'm willing to ignore that in a book that costs $2.99 but not in a book of this caliber. They clearly didn't bother to proof read it or if they did their employees are as inept as the company. Macmillan you stink!!!!
