“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.
