Black Magic, witchdoctors, things of old, or, are they? Are they still being practiced in Africa?
What would happen if your husband inherited a property secluded in the African bush
? Well most of us would grab the chance with both hands of a new life. This is exactly what the main characters Adele and her husband David did. They arrive at the new homestead and realize it has much work needs doing to be considered somewhat liveable
Newly married the pair embark on this new chapter in their life, looking forward to renovating the property and moving in, but their happiness is soon short-lived when they start noticing weird things happening. They are in the African Bush, animals should be in abundance, birds should be tweeting and flying overhead, but in fact around their property there is none, which is definitely a warning flag.
Before long they soon discover why, they actually do have an animal living on their property, or is it an animal? Walks like a human leaving footprints like a human, but its shadowy figure looks more like a hyena. This confirms to them that something evil is there, something neither man nor beast, just evil.
The pair enlist help in tracking down more information on the beast, they need to know what it is and how to deal with it, because this is their home and Adele is damned sure nothing is pushing them out of it.
You will be taken on a journey, an adventure, a scary trip that will have you rooted to the spot, whispering to yourself, WATCH OUT, perhaps yelling at the kindle like me!!! This is a fabulously well-written story, it tells the story of the old ways, witch doctors, medicine men, of tribal beliefs, the things that scare the tribes, the information is endless, you cannot help but be compelled to read on, to follow the journey to the end, keep praying for a miracle because these pair along with their friends and helpers are going to need more than help, they are going to need every ounce of their wits, their courage, their skills, and prayers to protect them.!!!

“Short, pithy chapters driven by fast and furious dialogue . . .Zunckel’s plot is as engaging and brilliantly executed as a few of his characters are . . . a must read – and this is his debut novel Wow, keep it up Mr. Paul Zunckel, I’m a fan for life

A brilliant debut novel. Very different in writing style and the author brings his characters to life.
So many twists and turns, you do not know what to expect, and it kept me on my toes. I finished this book in one sitting,, it just grabbed me, and I could not put it down, I had to know how it ended, and the end left me wanting more. A great read for anyone who is looking for a fresh approach.

Talk about a roller coaster ride, a great story that keeps you guessing, and definitely an author to follow. His take on Horror/Thriller is such a fresh approach. It was so good, I could not put it down until the final page.

From the start of the book it grabbed me and had me in it’s hold. Loved the contrast of quiet calm descriptive passages suddenly erupting into the suspense of the unexpected. You never know what this writer is going to explode onto thr next page. Several twists and turns with a shock ending !
