Veronica Kelly came to Africa to start her life over. Still reeling from her divorce, she is grateful when a handsome stranger invites her to join a tour to visit gorillas in Uganda's wild Impenetrable Forest. A trip that goes desperately wrong when their group is captured by brutal gunmen. 

Then one tourist is executed. 

And then another. 

This is no random kidnapping: their abduction is only the first move in a deadly strategic game. A game in which Veronica's ex-husband is somehow involved. 

Now she must embark on a wild journey across Africa, to unveil a malignant conspiracy before it consumes entire nations - and thousands of lives...

Are you actually male? The writing sort of makes me think of a female writer somehow, and I know that people do have pen names and identities.

I can't really get past the first paragraph, but I think you should change Susan's name to Betty. Then you could have an Archies in Africa episode.
