Sue Blaine Reviews Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade by Julian Rademeyer

Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn TradeVerdict: carrot

This is a devastating story, born of relentless, thorough investigation. Julian Rademeyer spent two years bringing to life this story of corruption, greed and selfish depravity, but also of courage, tradition and honour. It is a story of many surprises. It is, however, not altogether surprising; humans are as capable of the abject as they are the transcendent. Both are well displayed in this short, punchy book. It takes courage, however, to explore depravity to its end, and to face up to each new nadir with objectivity.
