Hunting an elephant in the fabled elephant graveyard. Is there something supernatural about the graveyard or is the hunter becoming the hunted? Very nice short story that I would recommend to anyone who likes a good game of cat and mouse.
JD Kelly did a fantastic job. I was in the passenger seat the whole time and this was a great ride. Can't wait to hear more from him.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

It's 1968 and big game hunter Walter Cravens is pursuing a dying bull elephant across the Serengeti plains. Accompanied by his Masai native guide, Cravens stops at nothing in his pursuit of the elephant's ivory tusks. Even a dire warning from an old woman won't stop him from seeking the elephant's destination, Tembo Makaburi, the elephant graveyard.
Jones captured me again with this story about a man's greed and arrogance. In just a few paragraphs he sketched out the setting and placed me there, baking under the African sun. It's very well written, and as always, has the perfect twist of an ending. If you're hesitating about picking up the book because you're an animal lover or don't like to read about hunting, you'll be ok with this read. It had me googling elephants and their habits, and I love stories that make me want to read more about the subject.
The narration was perfect, the narrator has an English accent for the main story but also performs accents for the African porters and guide. He manages to ooze Craven's arrogance through every word, it was really well done. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
