Until he resigned to write this book in order to expose the illegal Rhino horn trade, Julian Rademeyer was chief reporter for Media24 Investigations in South Africa. In a career spanning close on two decades, he has reported from some of the world's most troubled countries, including Somalia, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, Belarus and Lebanon. On the black markets, rhino horn is of extraordinary worth. Killing for Profit is a dramatic story of a two-year-long investigation into a dangerous criminal underworld and t he merciless syndicates that will stop at nothing to obtain their prize. It exposes the poachers, gangsters, con men, mercenaries, killers, gunrunners, diplomats, government officials and crime bosses behind the slaughter. And it follows the bloody trail from the front lines of the rhino wars in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to the medicine markets of Vietnam and the lair of a wildlife-trafficking kingpin on the banks of the Mekong River in Laos.
