Dan Taylor is trying to keep a low profile when an old friend contacts the Energy Protection Group seeking his help.

The man’s daughter is alone in sub-Saharan Africa, and her life is in grave danger.
Thrust back into active duty, Dan realises that getting Anna to safety is only half his problem. The forensic accountant holds the key to preventing Western Sahara descending into chaos, and exposing the puppet masters behind a coup d’état.

With a group of militants financed by a regime intent on acquiring mineral assets in the conflict-torn country in pursuit and willing to do anything to stop him, Dan must draw on old survival skills and luck to make sure Anna and the evidence she has in her possession reaches safety. 


I thought this was book 1 when I started it but then realized it was actually book 4 in the series, however this did't take away from the action or the book.  Dan Taylor is trying to lay low, sailing around the world when an old friend enlists his help to find his daughter who has gone missing in Africa.  Once Dan takes off to Africa there is non-stop action, conspiracies and political intrigue.

I really liked this book and will go back and read the first 3 before I continue on with this series.  I would like to learn more about the main character and why he seems to be on the outs with his government and what lead him to ditch it all to sail around sticking to the shadows.  I really like the author and read one of her other series about serial killers but this one is more of an espionage political thriller.
