New book alert! The Lion Conspiracy – the new wildlife corruption thriller by Peter Hain

The Lion Conspiracy by Peter Hain is out now from Jonathan Ball Publishers!

Hain’s latest thriller is grounded in real-life experience, and endorsed by global conservationists.

From South Africa to Zanzibar, from Kenya to Britain, activists are battling to save lion prides, today more threatened by extinction than rhinos and elephants, as a result of illegal wildlife trading.

Having thwarted murderous poachers in The Elephant Conspiracy, the Veteran, Thandi and Mkhize are back battling to save lion prides from being killed for their claws, teeth and bones.

As the demand for lion parts soars, impoverished local communities are being incentivised to poach, and the fight against this illegal plunder becomes ever more vicious.

Struggling to defeat the international criminal syndicate responsible for poaching, the team find themselves embroiled in mafia-style smuggling, illicit night flights, tense shoot-outs and an encounter with a protégé of Vladimir Putin.
