    Ghosts Of The Past
    Tony Park is a master storyteller. I love his work.' DEON MEYER<br/><br/>Africa, 1906: A young Australian adventurer is condemned to death.<br/><br/>Sydney, the present: journalist Nick Eatwell has just lost his job, but his day is brightened when a fellow reporter, South African Susan Vidler, comes into his life looking for help with a story.<br/><br/>Susan is chasing information about Nick's great-great uncle, Cyril Blake, who fought in the Anglo-Boer War and later joined the struggle for independence across the border in the German colony of South West Africa, now Namibia.<br/><br/>A long-lost manuscript proves Nick's forebear was a somewhat reluctant hero. Soldier, deserter, cattle rustler and freedom fighter, Blake was helping the lost cause before the Kaiser's forces ordered his assassination.<br/><br/>In Germany, historian Anja Berghoff is researching the origins of the famed desert horses of Namibia. She's also interested in Blake and an Irish-German firebrand and spy, Claire Martin, with whom Cyril had an affair.<br/><br/>Nick and Anja head to Africa on the trail of a legend, but someone else is delving into the past, looking for clues to the secret location of a missing horde of gold that's worth killing for.<br/><br/>Spanning two centuries, Ghosts of the Past is based on a true story. <br/><br/>PRAISE FOR TONY PARK<br/><br/>'Never disappoints as a storyteller' Daily Telegraph<br/><br/>'Park writes great action novels' Canberra Weekly
