"Few writers have matched Capstick's flair describing the hunt...in gruesome, realistic terms...A page-turner that is absolutely spine-tingling."-- Publishers Weekly on Death in the Long Grass "A most dramatic, action, danger and adventure epic for big game hunting fans...You won't put it down until finished."-- Maryland Gazette on Death in the Silent Places "Imagine confronting one of the most dangerous game animals of Africa. No thanks?...Well, the next best thing to being there (and a whole lot safer!) is a Peter Hathaway Capstick book."-- Best Sellers on Death in the Dark Continent
