BOOK 1: YA KUWINDA
ONE TINY PLANT IN THE CONGO WITH THE
POWER TO CHANGE EVERYTHING
ONE BRAVE WOMAN'S QUEST
TO FIND IT AND SAVE IT
a new novel by Brandon Wiggins
When Harper Morgan Smith sets off for Africa to search for a rare plant thought to have amazing healing powers, she assumes her biggest challenge will come from nature. But stampeding elephants, disease-carrying mosquitoes, thirst and hunger, deadly snakes and white-water rapids are only the beginning.
The brilliant botanist quickly learns that the real danger comes from her fellow humans in the form of greedy corporate titans, corrupt politicians, and brutal local gangs.
Separated from her team and thrust into an inhospitable environment in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Harper finds she must rely on her wits, determination, and strength to survive—plus her specialized knowledge of the world of plants.
More than just another thriller, Pursuit weaves its compelling story around provocative and timely observations on women’s roles in the world power structure, the imbalance between our consumer culture and the well-being of the planet, and the correlation between the human condition and the natural world.
This impressive debut novel combines an appealing heroine, non-stop action, an exotic African setting, whip-smart humor, romance, and fascinating science for an epic adventure worthy of Indiana Jones.
Let Pursuit sweep you away on an unforgettable journey from California's Big Sur coast to an opulent San Francisco mansion, a luxurious corporate jet, the spectacular beauty and infinite peril of Africa, and finally to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C.
Follow Harper's transformation from naïve graduate student to confident woman, battling ruthless corruption at the highest level. Pursuit is a special tale that will keep you up all night reading—and will give you something to think about for long afterwards.
