  • (1888PressRelease) March 28, 2021 - A lifelong animal lover, she cites the legendary film King Kong as the trigger for her artistic vocation and undoubtedly the revelation of her passion for animals. Jordan Tate has just finished her latest novel, "White Gold", a story that mixes adventure, love and thriller around an animal- the elephant- predated by humans for its white gold: The ivory.

    The book begins with the murder of Bradley Riche, an ardent animals defender, in his house in Nairobi, while he was finishing an article on the ivory black market and an investigation on one of the most powerful figures behind this traffic.

    The story then segues into that of his only daughter Della, who works for the Bronx Zoo, and doesn't buy into the local police's theory that he's been the victim of a burglary gone wrong.

    Initially sinking into a violent depression, following the loss of her father, Della regains a taste for life thanks to her meeting with Nicholas Varkas, a photographer for the National Geographic, who was working with her father to dismantle the traffic.

    Della decides to face her father's death, which she cannot accept, and to return to Africa with Nick, to continue his work.

    In her quest, Della will be helped by the Akashinga rangers, a group of female officers dedicated to animals protection, all women who come from a violent and miserable background, often victims of rape or domestic violence, and who find there a way to fight, to surpass their pain, to live and the family they did not have.

    The story is partly autobiographical, as Jordan draws on her own pain from the loss of her father to describe Della's suffering, resulting in poignant chapters on coping with grief.

    Mixing sensual love scenes, beautiful tributes to animals and their intelligence and harsher chapters such as the rape of a young woman who will become an Akashinga ranger, a bloody attack perpetrated by jihadists financed by the ivory trafficking or the torture of a ranger by the traffickers.
    "White Gold" is a page turner that will stay with you long after you read it.

    We will particularly remember the strong relationship between Della and Tim, a lonely elephant who has lost all his family, and who, such as the female lead, seeks to avenge his family.
