Set in Tanzania, White Slave is a fast-paced adventure about a bounty hunter’s search for a young woman kidnapped into the international sex slave trade.


In East Africa, shrinking herds of wild game have become national treasures worthy of protection. Law enforcement efforts have forced poachers to focus on a less protected cash crop: young, white women with well-shaped bodies. The poachers supply women for a third world sex industry where white prostitutes sell for many times the going rate. A brothel-keeper will sell a woman over and over again, until she goes mad, commits suicide, or dies of disease. The narcotics trade pales in comparison to this lucrative business.

When a female university student disappears without a trace, from an archaeological site in the Gol Mountains of northern Tanzania, her family retains a retired bounty hunter, Eli Walking Bear, to find her. Eli begins his search in Nairobi where he hires a guide, Jena Howell of Howell Safaris--a woman with her own cross to bear. Eli’s quest takes an unexpected turn when he rescues Zuleika, a black female slave with a thirst for revenge.

The hunt for the kidnapped woman takes Eli and Jena into the very guts of the sex slave trade, where the law is inept or corrupt, the criminals brutal, and everyone’s hand is against them.
