THE HUNTER WITHIN
Jack Hatcher has a small wild life park near Cape Town in South Africa. To supplement his income he has become the middleman in the illegal sales of endangered animals.
Jack is engaged to Rosy, a Zoology graduate who works with him, but has no idea of his shady dealings.
When officials raid the park Jack manages to escape capture with the help of Hans Richter. Hans is corrupt and violent, but he assists Jack by organising work for him away from South Africa. The job involves transporting a group of young boys from Chad to Australia to play soccer for Trevor McKenzie.
Trevor is a billionaire with legitimate businesses. The importing of the orphan boys seems philanthropic, but his real intention is to use them as prey.
Asante is one of the boys. On the journey to Australia, Asante and Jack Hatcher become friends. When they arrive at McKenzie’s property, and the true nature of what faces the boys is revealed. Jack tries to save them.

The Hunter Within was first published with a steam punk inspired cover created by the Murray Book Prize Award designer. This cover was created to catch the attention of international book buyers rather than reflect the subject matter; this was a marketing decision at the discretion of the experience of the publishing house.
