Killed in Kruger is a fast, exciting novel that I couldn't put down. Tabitha Kranz travels to Kruger National Park in South Africa to collaborate with her uncle Phillip on some wildlife articles, only to find him missing. When he turns up dead, Tabitha is left to complete the assignment alone. Encounters with exotic animals, smugglers, eccentric characters, a very different culture, and bureaucratic red tape keep the pace moving. Being young, out of her element, and too trusting keeps her in trouble and the suspense high. The characters range from charming to sly and even evil, the setting is vividly drawn, and the plot is engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it.

The author appears to have spent a brief time in South Africa, probably a few days safari in Kruger, and come away with a romantic notion to write a book about the bush. However, the local information is shockingly bad and fraught with errors. If you are going to write a book about South Africa, at least get a South African to proofread your factual and local language errors out! And it gets worse. The rather oddly-named "heroine" is the most incredibly irritating character imaginable, is in clear need of a good shrink, has an inexplicable misunderstanding of GSM network technology (she can't get her prepaid SIM card working the entire duration of the novel), and has an even worse understanding of her emotions and sexuality.
I felt ripped off, even at a few dollars. The only reason I read to the end was morbid fascination and a vain belief that it might miraculously improve - or that the heroine would somehow get shot, eaten, trampled or deported.

Not worth reading

Extremely poorly written poor use of paragraphs and a far fetched story line.
Author although having potential as a writer did not display this in this book.
I will not buy any more books by this author

It's like watching a movie with a good plot but bad actors. The book was entertaining though the writing was not great.

I've just finished reading Denise Hartman's novel, 'Killed in Kruger,' and really enjoyed it!

Set in the Kruger National Park, it's the story of a young American woman who travels to the Park in search of her photographer uncle who is assisting her in establishing her career as a journalist. On her arrival, she discovers that he has been murdered and, unwilling to follow her fiancé's advice to give up and flee the country, she sets out to discover what happened to her uncle.

Ms. Hartman's obvious familiarity with the present day Kruger Park makes for interesting reading.

this is the worst book I have ever read. Seriously! The story and the conclusion are stated in the first chapter and nothing more happens. Chapter after chapter is a rehashing of the story. the characters are unbelivealbe, undeveloped, and uninteresting. I read this while on safari and the only reason I continued with it was because I was in Kruger. My time would have been much better spent just sitting under a tree and watching the animals walk by.

I just have to tell you this book was the most exciting page to page of excitement. What a mystery. I couldn't but the book down. (Only when I had to.) It was anticipating to get a few hours more to read. I absolutely had to keep going to find the turns and wondering if they had all been in on the excitement of this very detailed story that just happened to catch my eyes in clued excitement.

Does not even deserve a single star. Badly written, factually incorrect and horrific attempt at using one of the local languages. The author even insults those speaking the language describing it as "sounding like a coughing Dutch". I did not consider it worth reading to the end.
