Book Description

Tabitha Krans arrives to discover the veldt of South Africa’s Kruger Park seems to have swallowed up Uncle Phillip. Tabitha’s afraid her writing career has disappeared along with him and dire things lie in wait for her as her mother had predicted. Uncle Phillip’s connections are her only link to travel writing and his photos are crucial. When he turns up dead, she wants the truth. Dead men don’t speak but photos Phillip took evoke strange reactions in park authorities. Her nosing around turns up suspicions of human trafficking, poaching and covert investigations but not many answers. South Africa holds dark secrets and deep beauty but it doesn’t want to give Tabitha the truth. She keeps prying until someone believes she’s a threat in need of elimination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Exciting--Loved it! June 21, 2012
By Ellis
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely awful. A dreary, pedestrian read. July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great writer December 6, 2012

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

1.0 out of 5 stars A very poorly written book May 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste a moment on this book!!! November 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kruger Park Novel November 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars ok plot April 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author needs an editor.
The odd typing and attempt at editing made reading the book a bit annoying Just home from Africa, Kruger to be exact, I loved reading about the place I truly loved. With better editing, this could be a fun murder mystery,

4.0 out of 5 stars Good "prep" for Africa! October 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was traveling to South Africa and enjoyed the book tremendously for its local color, plot, and info on the park and animals - some of the most dangerous ones- with two legs! Lotsa fun.

Writing caught fire for me about the same time mysteries did. In the 5th grade! I've been working on writing and reading like crazy ever since. For many years, I wrote for newspapers and magazines. Now I'm doing scripts for short films and gleaning oddities from travel that can go into books. Learn more about me on my website.
