THE CHEETAH CHASE by Karin McQuillan
Released: Aug. 1, 1994

"As usual, Jazz makes a blundering but appealing detective whose investigation is wrapped, like Godiva chocolate, around a sumptuous tour of sub-Saharan Kenya."
Jazz Jasper (Elephants' Graveyard, 1993) hasn't had a client for her Kenyan safaris in two months, but she's not exactly idle: She's hunting down whoever left a deadly Saharan scorpion in the loo to sting her friend and host Nick Hunter, a journalist who'd retreated to a private preserve among the Samburu.

"Unforgettable depictions of elephant slaughter, baboon mating habits, etc. An intelligent, at times lyrical, African adventure, told from a moderate feminist perspective."
Impassioned defense of Kenyan wildlife from second-novelist McQuillan, whose heroine, Jazz Jasper (Deadly Safari, 1990), now calls on longtime friend Emmet Laird, champion of the Save the Elephant cause, only to find him dead at his camp in the African bush, while his estranged wife Alicia and her latest lover Greg waffle about what they're doing at the site.
