AFRICA. 1970

Briony and Tom, both in their twenties, are very different characters.
But opposites attract. In business, as in love, they complement each other.

They buy a farm and discover a rare drug. Tom grows it and
Briony markets it. At first, they are oblivious of their responsibilities to
the land and its people. But gradually they realise that they have been
supporting a racist and colonialist regime.

The onset of the Rhodesian – Zimbabwean War of Independence
tears at the couple’s relationship. Misunderstandings arise from their
conflicting personalities and from external pressures. Events pull them apart,
but also bind them together.

Try the Leopard’s Mouth is a romantic thriller set in
Africa. It is also a historical novel, grounded in real events in the period

About the Author

Charles Moberly has written three novels to date: The Scrotum Toad, a satirical comedy (Winner of a Chill with a Book Reader Award); The Corncrake, a historical novel set in 1909-10 and 1914-15 (Winner of a Chill with a Book Premier Award).

In The Corncrake, four members of a family share the narration, which passes between them approximately 300 times throughout – this powerful technique allows the reader to enter the minds of the characters as they react to events, so that love, conflicts and misunderstandings are conveyed immediately. This is only possible if the voices of the characters are so strong that they are identifiable the moment they speak. Try the Leopard’s Mouth is a romantic thriller with a firm historical base.

Charles lived and worked in Africa for two years, which explains why two of his novels are set there.

In his writing, he loves tension and how cultural differences can tear people apart, yet unite them through a common humanity. He believes that no two characters should ever have the same voice. He writes in the vernacular of the time and place, using slang where appropriate.

He now lives in the UK.
