To the Reader,
DAWN OF DECEPTION is a book I have spent years researching, and writing, that delves into the world of international poaching syndicates and political corruption in Kenya. To the best of my knowledge the historical background of ethnic cleansing is accurate, and the criminal methods employed in the illegal trade of ivory are well documented & unfortunately continue today. Despite Kenya's problems I hope that the book also portrays a nation rich in culture and natural beauty.
David Nbeke and the other characters are fictitious, although the evil mastermind Maliki is based on someone I met in Nairobi who had failed the lion hunt, bore the scars, and been ostracized from his tribe - unlike Maliki he was a warm and gentle soul. Although the country's history gives the characters more depth and motivation this is in essence a thriller as David Nbeke fights for justice and his own survival.
In the sequels, DIVIDED THEY FALL and SWAHILI SUNSET, David teams up with Clarissa May of the CIA to combat terrorists planning to blow up the American Embassies in Nairobi & Dar es Salaam.
I hope you enjoy reading Dawn of Deception and the rest of the series as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
All the best,
PS If you have the time and inclination please leave a review, every little bit of feedback helps!
Hi there, I'm Dan Fletcher and was brought up in Africa and have lived in South Africa, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Nigeria, as well as Canada, Spain, and the UK. Author of DAWN OF DECEPTION, DIVIDED THEY FALL, and THE STASH, my love for thrillers started at an early age due to the lack of any TV. I currently lives in Wiltshire with my wife, Clare, and our 6 children. Hope that you enjoy reading my books and love getting reviews, so please leave one if you have the time. All the best and stay...
