Into the Darkness can be found in paperback and on Kindle here.

Piet van Zyl tried to stop the animal poachers. Now he’s been left for dead, alive but badly injured. No memories. Predators all around, and the threat of the elements day and night. Hunted by loved ones, assassins and the animals he spent his life trying to save, Into the Darkness is a thrilling tale of attempting to survive in the South African veldt and beyond, on wits alone.

Paul Zunckel was born in 1957 in Rhodesia. His family moved to South Africa in 1966, where he completed his schooling at Kingsway Senior High School in Amanzimtoti. He did his two years National service in the South African Defence Force as an Ops Medic, wanting to follow his heart and study medicine, but life got in the way. Paul was employed in Air Traffic Control for twenty years, and has been involved in Management positions for over twenty-five years. He has a Human Resource Management Diploma, and is an accredited Facilitator. He started to write full time in August 2014, about something that is close to his heart… Africa. The mysteries, the superstitions, and all the beauty and treachery of the land. His wife is responsible for the road he is now traveling, as she was the driving force behind him in his Debut novel, Blood Moon over Africa. Paul and his family live in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
