The Crocodile's Last Embrace ~~ Suzanne M. Arruda

The Crocodile's Last Embrace by Suzanne M. Arruda
After a brief sojourn in Europe, intrepid explorer Jade del Cameron returns to Kenya with bittersweet memories -- as well as the certainty that Africa is her home and Sam Featherstone is the man she wants to share her life. But soon she is haunted not only by the past but by a very present danger....

When a letter arrives from France, Jade hopes it is Sam sending word of his return. Instead it is a message written in the hand of her long-dead fiance asking, "Why did you let me die?" Who would play such a cruel prank on her? She sets aside these preoccupations when she witnesses a car go over the side of a bridge. At first Jade suspects the driver was killed for his share in a northern gold mine, but soon a second man dies, his body prey to a man-eating crocodile. Are the murders part of a larger, more sinister scheme?

When Jade discovers that her old nemesis Lilith Worthy has escaped from prison, the mysterious deaths -- and the threatening letters -- begin to form the most dangerous case Jade has ever faced, pitting her against a ferocious crocodile and an even more deadly and devious adversary, who is all too human.
