Leon Courtney is a safari guide for the rich and powerful in the Masai tribal territories. One of his clients, Count Otto von Meerbach, is a German industrialist whose company builds vehicles for the Kaiser's army. Before the outbreak of the First World War, Leon is recruited by his uncle to spy on the Count--and what he uncovers is a plot against the British. What Leon hadn't realized was that he was falling in love with the Count's mistress.

This is one of those books in which the first half is better than the last. The first part of the book is fast paced and very interesting. The last half is slow and boring at times. I pride myself on reading every word of a book, but I must admit that I skipped many pages in this novel. Don't get your hopes up too high and you won't be disappointed.
