THE WHITE CROCODILE by K.T. Medina

The White Crocodile is fate.

 

Tess Hardy thought she had put Luke, her violent husband, firmly in her past. Until he calls from Cambodia, where he is working as a mine-clearer, and there’s something in his voice she hasn’t heard before. Fear. Two weeks later, he’s dead. Was it really an accident, or was Luke murdered? Against her better judgment, Tess is drawn to Cambodia, taking a job at the same humanitarian mine clearance charity Luke had been working for.

 

The White Crocodile is judgement.

 

What greets her is a country full of strange beliefs, where danger is all around. Teenage mothers are disappearing from villages around the minefields, while others are being found mutilated and murdered, their babies abandoned.

 

The White Crocodile is death.

 

Tess hears whispers of the White Crocodile, a mythical beast that brings death to all who meet it. Caught in a web of secrets and lies that stretches all the way from Cambodia to another murder in England, and a violent secret twenty years old, Tess must find out the truth, and quickly – because the crocodile is watching . . .
