IN HIS seventh novel, The Delta,
Tony Park has again blended his inti-
mate knowledge of southern Africa
with an action-packed plot that has
the reader turning the page in antici-
pation from beginning to end.
The central character is the
Namibian-born Sonja Kurtz, a former
British Army special operative turned
After finding her spectacular assas-
sination attempt on the Zimbabwean
president in the opening chapter was a
set-up, Sonja wants out of her lucrative
life as a hired gun but has trouble say-
ing no to her boss and one-time lover,
the disgraced and shady former SAS
officer Martin Steele.
A chance encounter with an
American wildlife documentary crew
takes Sonja on a journey back to her
past where she finds the people she was
once close to have changed in the two
decades she's been away and her former
homeland is under threat.
To secure the financial future of
her teenage daughter, and with the
unwitting documentary makers as her
cover, Sonja is persuaded to embark
on one last job -- a reconnaissance of a
nearly completed dam on Botswana's
Okavango River, which threatens to
destroy the fragile Okavango Delta eco
system, renowned as one of Africa's
most diverse wildlife sanctuaries, and

With the African landscape and
wildlife providing a colourful back-
drop, the author cleverly blends
familiar places, magnificent animals,
fictional events rooted in real history
and a cast of strong characters into
a plot where the reader is sometimes
left wondering where non-fiction
ends and the fiction begins.
The 480 pages of The Delta have
something for everyone, whether
they be sailors looking for an escape,
an armchair traveler fascinated by
Africa and its wildlife, or an adven-
ture seeker imagining themselves
facing the elements.
(Batman Begins) and Joseph
Gordon-Levitt's (500 Days of
Summer) performances comple-
ment DiCaprio's in this enigmat-
ic and, at times, puzzling film.
Nonetheless, a hint if you
intend on viewing this film -- pay
attention or you will become
lost in the infinite labyrinth of
dreams within a dream.
Inception is now showing in
cinemas across the country.
