Author Tony Park spoke about his two latest books, at Constantia Village, on Wednesday November 22.

Bwana, There’s a Body in the Bath, is Park’s biography of 99-year-old Peter Whitehead, who has led an adventurous life with many near-death experiences and was still working at age 86 training horses.

Park’s latest thriller, Vendetta, is set on the KwaZulu-Natal coast where researcher Adam Kruger runs into a crooked fisherman hunting for shark fin. This is a prized delicacy in parts of Asia. Unscrupulous fishermen will catch a shark, cut off its fin – sometimes while it’s still alive – and then keep the fin but dump the rest of the shark at sea.
