In the Company of Crocodiles
By Maggie Brown
Two women fight for survival in a wilderness.
Two strong-willed women are fighting for survival in a primitive wilderness of venomous snakes, stinging insects, and crocodile-infested swamps. Too bad those are the least of their worries.
After being severely wounded in a covert operation, ex-Australian Secret Service officer Vivian Andrews has built a quiet life for herself in a small fishing village in Northern Queensland. Or so she believes, until she discovers a rotting corpse in the mangroves.
At the police station to report her discovery, Vivian finds two government agents looking for her. A young man has gone missing and they need an experienced guide to help them negotiate the terrain to find him.
Claire is a one of the special agents. When her partner is injured, she and Vivian must use every skill they possess to complete their mission despite nearly impenetrable walls of vegetation, trails that lead to deadly traps, the damp simmering heat. And another kind of heat neither of them wishes to acknowledge.
