My husband was given the paperback version of "Poacher" (then entitled "Dying is not Easy") personally signed by the author, Leon Mare, as a birthday present which I have now had the pleasure of reading. It is beautifully written with no words too many nor too few - it was literature at its best. It is one of those rare books which is avidly devoured from cover to cover with heart-stopping events and incidents on every other page. One can forgive the reader for thinking that they were bystanders watching the entire scene unfold: the atmosphere was so intimate and real. I cannot see anyone who reads this book who will not be seduced by Africa. Purely brilliant.
