While Jade del Cameron is driving an ambulance near the front lines in World War I, she sees a friend's plane shot down and runs to his aid. Her almost fiancé dies in her arms, making a last request: that she find his brother, and his father's murderer. Since David Worthy had no brother, to her knowledge, it's a tall order. David's mother refuses to even discuss the possibility her husband may have fathered an illegitimate son, so Jade's next step is to venture to Africa, where David's father, Gil Worthy, mysteriously died.

In British East Africa, Jade meets an array of colonists, almost none of whom remember Gil Worthy. She hears that he was killed by a hyena in his hotel room, and the natives believe the hyena was controlled by a witch. Jade makes new friends in coffee-farming colonists Neville and Madeline Thompson, Lord Colridge, an old aristocrat everyone defers to, and piques the interest of Harry Hascombe, a successful rancher. Jade's excuse for being in Africa is writing and taking photos for a travel magazine, so she always manages to be in the thick of things. It is Jade who kills a hyena that has been troubling a native village, earning a ceremony in her honor, and a new name, Simba Jike. A shaman paints a lion claw tattoo on her arm that won't wash off, and she is given a noxious paste to ward off witches and lions. Since the paste seems to work, she wears it always, despite the complaints of those around her.

Her dear friends, Lord Avery and Lady Beverly Dunbury, arrive for a visit just in time to go on safari with Jade, Madeline Thompson, Harry Hascombe, and his surly neighbor, Roger Forster. Lord Colridge breaks his leg and cannot go, so he sends his right-hand man, Pili, to accompany Jade. During all this time, Jade questions everyone about Gil Worthy, hoping to find who would have gained from his death, and also trying to find David's brother and fulfill his last request. Jade is in almost constant danger, which she faces fearlessly with her trusty Winchester. She makes wry observations about the foibles of the society around her, completely comfortable with being different. She's too practical to care much about fashions, but winds up setting trends when she breaks convention. She is a heroine almost without flaw, but she is also devoid of arrogance and very likeable.

It soon became obvious that Gil Worthy's killer lived in the colony, and several clues point to who it is, though suspicion is cast on others. It's not easy for Jade to find David's brother, though she manages to do that, too. The mystery solved, the book ends rather abruptly, as another Jade del Cameron story will be along.

This is a fun and refreshing series in a time and place that have not been overdone, starring an old-fashioned heroine with modern sensibilities. The mystery was a good one, but the real star was the setting of Africa, vividly and lovingly described in a way that transports the reader there. This is definitely a promising new mystery series worth reading.

A friend recommended this book, and i have to say, i enjoyed it immensely, this is the first volume of a continuing series in the Jade Cameron Mystery series, i will make an effort to pick up the rest and see if they are equal to this first outing. Characters are well drawn out, and mystery has a few twists and turns.

Jade Del Cameron is a terrific new character. I've loved African stories since I was small, and rarely do I find one with such a charming lead female. Jade is able to take care of herself. She's the sort of character that makes you keep turning the pages long after bedtime.

I like the character of Africa, too. Suzanne Arruda brings the area to life. I loved the little chapter headings - the articles that Jade "wrote". They bring added life to the story.

I hope to see lots more of Jade, and of Africa in the future.

I like the way the author writes and word useage. It was easy reading and understandable. Interesting account of an African Safari. Can’t give it 5 stars though. Glad I read it.

Suzanne Arruda delivers an adventure to readers in 'Mark of the Lion,' the first in a series of Jade Del Cameron Mysteries.

In Post WWI France, American ambulance driver Jade Del Cameron witnesses her lover/fiance crash and die on the battlefield. His last wish is for Jade to locate a brother he never met. Her promise to fulfill his dying wish takes her to British East Africa where her journey takes the reader on magnificent train rides and safaris across the veldt. Jade makes new friends and is visited by her close friend and comrade driver, Beverly. Along the way she meets British plantation owner Harry Hascombe, a giant man with an eye for the beautiful Ms. Del Cameron. When Jade's journey closes in on the missing brother she comes across a killer hyena and lion the natives believe to be summoned by a witch doctor angry with them. As Jade continues to learn more about the missing brother she soon realizes not only her life, but the lives of those close to her are threatened by this curse. Or is there a curse at all?

What I enjoyed most of this book is the fact it takes place nearly a hundred years from now at a time before African safaris became world-famous. Her attention to detail, characters, the flow of the book make this a classic you will keep in your collection forever. I've read two of this series beginning with Treasure of the Golden Cheetah, and I have enjoyed Ms. Arruda's books. Her skill and imagination will leave you ready to read the next book in this series. As for me, I'm planning my own trip for an African safari....I just don't know when, but rest assure it will happen!
