Evil is at play in a South African game reserve.
A poacher vanishes into thin air, defying logic, and baffling ace tracker Mia Greenaway.
Meanwhile Captain Sannie van Rensburg, still reeling from a personal tragedy, is investigating the disappearance of two young girls who locals fear have been abducted for use in sinister traditional medicine practices.
But poachers are also employing witchcraft, paying healers for potions they believe will make them invisible and bulletproof.
When a tourist goes missing, Mia and Sannie must work together to confront their own demons – which challenges everything they believe in – while following a bloody trail that seems to vanish at every turn.
After 7 days did we discover the truth about the missing tourists? About the witchcraft?
Review by Sharon Beyond the Books, “Blood Trail is a gritty, fast-paced and hard-hitting thriller that has been written so well that you go through the rollercoaster of emotions as the story unfolds. Tony Park has, again, brought a book that you don’t want to put away till later…you just want to keep turning the pages and stay in the world he has created.”

Extract at The Magic of Wor(l)ds, “A lion roared outside. The deep, longing call came from the pit of its belly, and made the glass pane of her bedroom window vibrate. Normally, she loved that sound, and, being that close, she might once have found it a bit scary.”
Review by Jessica Belmont, “Twists and turns are a plenty in Blood Trail. It kept me guessing until the very end. I enjoyed this one very much and I will definitely read more by this author in the future.”
Portable Magic puts Tony in the spotlight today as we learn the inspiration behind Blood Trail, how he constructs his characters, his favourite movie and so much more…
Review by twilight_reader (IG), “The best part about this book is the level of detail you can tell the author has done his research to understand traditions and the cultures. The plot came together perfectly and the adventure is so captivating.”
Extract at Over the Rainbow Book Blog, “‘The man you were tracking killed the rhino?’ Jeff asked Oscar. Oscar nodded, a grave look on his face. ‘Yes, we picked up his tracks by the carcass. It was the same man.’ ‘And he vanished.’ Foster snapped his fingers. ‘Poof, into thin air. Magic.’ Oscar looked up at him.”
Review by Rajivs Reviews, “Another reason why I enjoyed the tale is that how intricate the plot felt. Once you realize what is happening, you admire the complexity of how the events took place. There are also some shocking deaths that I did not anticipate that lead to a gripping climax.”
Extract at Jazzy Book Reviews, “Sannie reached out and put a hand on Nomvula’s shoulder as her body heaved beneath her touch, the fear threatening to overwhelm her. Sannie could not imagine how she would feel if one of her children went missing, but Nomvula seemed to be fearing the worst already. ‘How about Lilly’s father?’”
And that is well and truly a wrap!
Thank you ever so much to everyone who has taken part in the tour!
Until the next adventure xxx
