Green Lion free pdf "Of course, you're never expecting the lion, are you? Like something coming up in the rear-view mirror. Much closer than it appears." When a lion at a breeding park mauls an old school friend of his, Con steps in as the keeper of Sekhmet, the last remaining black-maned lioness in the world. In a Cape Town where fences keep people and wildlife apart, park officials and investors fret about their flagship big-cat project. And while Con grows steadily more bonded to his enigmatic charge, a cult of animal lovers with obscure alchemical aims seeks to claim the lioness as their own. When she escapes, Sekhmet engulfs the city's imagination, stirring up rumours of terror and magic. In Con's quest to track her down, he must enter the wilderness of a cordoned-off Table Mountain - and his own dark history. Henrietta Rose-Innes's novel Green lion gleams with stylistic precision as myth and reality fuse in a story that sparks off the page.
