HORN is a fast-moving novel about the scourge of rhino poaching in the Kruger National Park.
Vietnamese syndicates are enticing poor African locals to risk their lives for a few dollars, while they make millions. The South African Government appoints an outsider to head the Anti-poaching unit. The HORN holds a powerful lure for the anti-poaching unit, the syndicates, a London journalist, a Hong Kong society lady, and an Interpol agent. All are chasing the HORN on the living beast or as a powdered placebo.
