Next month Piatkus launches a brand new adventure series starring the beautiful and feisty Jade del Cameron – a bold heroine years ahead of her time.

Jade may be a photo journalist by trade, yet she also shoots, twirls a lariat, pilots a plane, and rides a motorcycle better than most of the men she encounters in the British protectorate where she lives – and she routinely uses all of those skills to solve the mysteries that come her way . . .

Jade encounters the magic of Africa when she agrees to fulfil a fighter pilot's dying wish – to investigate the death of his father and track down his half brother. Killer lions, hyenas and African sorcerers are only a few of the probelms that Jade faces in the wilds of colonial Africa, especially when she finds herself involved in murder . . .

On a photography assignment in the northern territory of Mount Marsabit, Jade hopes to film the area's colossal elephants. Instead, she discovers the mutilated remains of four elephants and a man. When the Kikuyn boy accompanying her is is captured by slave traders, Jade must join forces with the handsome Sam Featherstone to rescue her guide, protect the animals and expose one shocking conspiracy.

Soon after Jade joins her mother in the ancient port city of Tangier, Dona del Cameron goes missing and, shockingly, the French authorities seek to arrest Jade for murder. To find her mother and expose the true villains, Jade must call upon her resourcefulness and courage as never before. Join Jade as she traverses haunted underground tunnels, dangerous souks and the wild and majestic Atlas mountains of Morocco.
