Enjoy an excerpt from African Waters.

“Jules, I guess we’re going to Zambia.”

Rick and Jules had just solved the murder of Ava, the daughter of a wealthy businessman in South Africa. The case had been covered by mainstream media all over Africa and was one of the most publicized cases the country had ever seen. In the hotel, they and Gary had been ready to take a breather and then get out of Africa and out of the spotlight—until a young black man by the name of Junior Dlamini knocked on the door and offered Rick another case. His father, Bandile Dlamini, had been killed in what was officially ruled a “hunting accident.” But Junior was certain he had been murdered.

“My father spent most of his life protecting animals from poachers,” he’d explained. “He made many enemies.” Shortly before his death, his dad had become aware of a large stash of illegal elephant ivory. “The biggest collection in all of Africa. There is a seventeen-million-kwacha reward for finding the ivory and delivering it to the government to get it off of the black market. That’s the equivalent to a million US dollars. My father found the stash and stole it. He hid it somewhere near the Zambezi River near the Kafue National Park. He told me if anything ever happened to him, that the proof of his death would be found with the ivory. He gave me a map to it, but it was destroyed when my dad’s Toyota Land Cruiser was fire-bombed. He had just given it to me when his new Land Rover Defender arrived. I think the men who blew up my Toyota thought my dad was driving. I was lucky to get out alive. I have terrible burns on my arms.” He lifted his arms, which were both covered in bandages. “When the truck blew up, I had just opened the top and I was able to climb out before it burnt to the ground. The map was in the console. It was completely destroyed. Two days later, my father was shot in the back and died alone beside his new overland truck. There’s no way it was an accident. No one would shoot that close to a vehicle accidentally.”

Junior had told Rick that because the local police were corrupt and had failed to solve his dad’s murder, the case had gone cold. “Please, Mr. Waters, you must help me.” He’d stared at Rick plaintively, his dark eyes behind his glasses begging for help.

After careful deliberation, Rick had decided to take on the case. Even if there wasn’t compensation for returning the ivory to the government, he would’ve taken the case anyway. It was the right thing to do. For now, Florida would have to wait. He just didn’t know how to break the news to his crew, Johnie and Possum, back in Key West. He’d figure it out. This was too important.

“Junior, I’ll help you. By the way, this is Jules, and over there is my partner, Gary. We’ll need to fly to Zambia. What is the closest airport to your area?”
