Description
Georgie is excited when Darcy announces out of the blue that they are flying to Kenya for their extended honeymoon. But after they arrive, she begins to suspect he has actually been sent there on assignment. Darcy finally confides that there has been a string of robberies in London and Paris, and it is suspected the thief was a member of the aristocracy who may have fled to Kenya. Then, not long after their arrival, one of the leading lights of the upper-class English community in Nairobi is found dead along a lonely stretch of road. Was it a lion attack? Or is there a darkness lurking under the surface of the community s decadent lifestyle?

display_descriptionGeorgie is excited when Darcy announces out of the blue that they are flying to Kenya for their extended honeymoon. It is only after they arrive that she suspects he has actually been sent there on an assignment. She tries not to be angry, because she is, after all, in a paradise! They are picked up in Nairobi and taken to a lovely house in Happy Valley -- the center of upper-class English life there. Darcy finally confides that there have been some spectacular robberies in London and Paris, and it is suspected that the thief was a member of the aristocracy and may have fled to Kenya. Georgie is shocked at the completely decadent lifestyle that involves wild parties and rampant infidelity. One of the leading lights in the community, Lord Cheriton, makes a play for Georgie. She rebuffs him. Then he is found dead along a lonely stretch of road. At first it seems to be a lion attack. But why was he on that stretch of road, alone, late at night? It seems the Happy Valley community wants to close the case, but as Georgie and Darcy investigate, almost everyone has a motive to want Lord Cheriton dead.
