by Ashwin Dave.

An exciting and colourful debut novel and both a suspenseful and fast-paced thriller, When Elephants Fight is full of unexpected twists and turns with well-depicted and fascinating characters.

Drawing on his personal knowledge and love of East Africa, having lived there, Ashwin Dave vividly portrays the ambience of a society rich in history and divergent cultures, whilst taking the reader on a fast-track of intrigue.  From London to Dubai, the exotic islands of Lamu and Zanzibar, tensions in Tehran, the lesser known Sikh Temple Gurudwara and the Mackinnon Road Dargah on the road from Nairobi to the teaming coastal port of Mombasa, this enthralling well-written novel includes the controversial ivory trade, poaching, corrupt camel-racing, love, beautiful women – and cold-blooded murder!
