Publisher's Summary

Richard, Carmel and Liesl are an unlikely trio with a complex shared past. They met while working in Rwanda during the genocide. Now the three are back together, united both by a photograph and attempts on their lives. After receiving a summons from the International Criminal Tribunal of Rwanda, someone has tried to kill both Carmel and Richard. Could this be connected to the photograph they saw in Rwanda, or to the summons?
Embarking on a mission to find the answers, they are drawn into the violent and harrowing world of animal smuggling, a world more frightening then they ever could have predicted. It is not just animals that are being smuggled, but human organs from living donors. Soon, their lives are all on the line and only one person can help them.

Good story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Heart to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed the book, but was a bit put off by the narrator. Although he tries to speak with a South African accent for some of the characters, in some ways this was off-putting because many of his pronunciations were awful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all the main characters. They are all key to the story.

Did Richard Aspel do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

The characters were differentiated quite well, though occasionally he got the accents wrong for a couple of the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is quite an exciting book and I would have liked to be able to listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Pity the narrator didn't research the pronunciations of the South African/Afrikaans words and place names before reading this story. I lived in South Africa so was very put off by these mispronunciations.
