A Savage Garden

A SAVAGE GARDEN is a powerful, thought-provoking and action-packed thriller set in the lawless wilds of the Congo.

 Jack Norton is an ex-Navy Seal who came to Africa to make a difference. Now he’s a jaded mercenary who hires himself out to the highest bidder, whether for good or evil, Red Cross or war lord.

 However, when Jack agrees to fly some injured children to a hospital in the Congo, he has no idea that a year later the destiny of a whole country will rest on his shoulders.

 For Jack is employed to protect a man named Papa Jim and his troop of rescued child soldiers. Papa Jim’s plan – to educate these boys abroad for a future ‘intelligent revolution’ – offers hope, yet is funded by a secret diamond mine. And Papa Jim’s enemies won’t stop until they get their hands on those blood diamonds … 

With the help of his old friend, former British Army Captain Mark Wilkinson, Jack embarks on an odyssey across Africa on a helter-skelter quest to save a troop of rescued child soldiers, a broken country … and perhaps himself.
