In the jungle, no one can hear you scream
American movie star Scarlett Cox and her husband, hotel tycoon Salvador Brazza, head to Africa to get away and resuscitate their ailing marriage. When robbed of their money and passports, they seek help from the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam on the very day Al Qaeda chooses to bomb it. In an eyeblink they are taken hostage and whisked across the border deep into the Congo, one of the last truly wild places left on earth.
Battling terrorists, deadly wildlife, and cannibalistic rebels, Scarlett and Sal must find a way to survive in a violent, primeval world. And the only person who may be able to save them is the assassin sent to kill them.

Interview with the Author
Q – So, who are your favorite authors and why?
A – I grew up reading all the big names in horror like Stephen King and Dean Koontz and James Herbert and Clive Barker. I’ve also always enjoyed Bentley Little and Richard Laymon. Recently I’m getting into some new names in dark suspense like Bobby Adair and Joe Hill and Blake Crouch.
I also like a lot of crime authors who write urban murder stories such as Martina Cole, Lisa Gardner, Linwood Barclay, Harlan Coben, Karen Slaughter, and so forth.
Why do I like them? They write great horror/thriller/suspense stories that check all the boxes: realistic characters, scary settings, real chills, lurking dread, danger, fast pacing, plots twists. And they also experiment with genres, mixing horror with science fiction, or psychological suspense with supernatural suspense, or occult thrillers with crime thrillers, and so forth. Furthermore, I enjoy writers who have a flare for creating engrossing moods, whether they are dark, disturbing, scary, vengeful, you name it.

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?
A – They are scary and fast-paced and include quite a few surprises and plot twists (and the occasional touch of humor).
