Tony Park's latest action adventure thriller THE DELTA has been published in the UK, by Quercus who have already bought 9 Tony Park thrillers from Isobel Dixon as part of their UK launch campaign.
Tony went on a busy launch tour in South Africa, where Business Day praised THE DELTA as 'more than an adventure story with a little danger, romance and an exotic setting thrown in for good measure. It's a contemporary chronicle of the conflict between modernisation and the status quo; between corporate interests and the desire to preserve what nature has provided.'
In the UK the Daily Mail has called it 'an all-action, old-fashioned full-on Boy's Own romp from an author who is starting to challenge Wilbur Smith for the title of master of the African thriller…Break-neck in pace, with narrow escapes from death on every page, its charm is infectious.'
After recently acquiring Tony's whole backlist, Quercus have already published SILENT PREDATOR, ZAMBEZI and now THE DELTA and will release the rest over the next two years. In his home country, Australia, Tony is published by Macmillan.
Praise for TONY PARK:
'An author who is starting to challenge the veteran Wilbur Smith for the title of 'master of the African thriller'' -- Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
'Tony Park is one of Australia's best thriller writers and his African-based novels are consistently entertaining and thought-provoking.' -- Canberra Times
'Park's heroes are tough, blokey types - soldiers and coppers - and his heroines sassy and smart, but Africa always steals the show…a great way to spend a winter evening, transported to somewhere warm and exotic.' -- Georgia Gowing, The Independent Weekly
'He just gets better and better. His descriptions of the southern African bush and mountain jungles are so vivid you can just about feel the sun on your skin and smell the dust and animals.' -- Frank Walker, Sun Herald
'If you like action adventures, with a spy theme, some education - either travel or technological - and a little romance, then this guy's for real…Rip-snorting romps that keep you guessing at all levels. What puts this into the top echelon of the genre is that the people, even the heroes, are fallible human beings.' -- June Joyce, Waikato Times
