July 2017
HUNTING GROUND, by Val Harris was launched in March 2017 and is available as a print and kindle edition from We are delighted with the response from readers that Hunting Ground has generated, and you can read some of the five star the reviews on Amazon.

HUNTING GROUND is a five star novel set in Kenya in the Masai Mara and Nairobi – take yourself on safari but be prepared for a crime and an… ‘whoa, I didn’t see that coming!’ twist. Two couples, two camps, a man consumed with rivalry and his long suffering wife, and a failed businessman.

When Mary Stephenson disappears from a safari camp in the Masai Mara, the hunt is on to find her. Could militants be responsible or is someone else, with a more personal agenda, behind the attack? Moving between Nairobi and the wild plains and skies of the beautiful Masai Mara, this is a story of innocent lives marred by the dark clouds of envy and revenge.

And here is what Juliette Foster said about Hunting Ground when she reviewed it for Surrey Life Magazine book corner, in the July 2017 edition:

Hunting Ground, the fifth novel by Farnham's Val Harris, uses the wild Masai Mara plains and the dusty heat of Nairobi as the backdrop to a powerfully-told story of envy, rage and revenge. The culmination is an excellent plot twist that reinforces the narrative message about the dangers of walking away from responsibility. It's the perfect summer read.
