Author P. Zoroabout this book: Any African myth or legend is dismissible as a figment of someone's imagination, someone long dead. Shaun discovers on a mission to Zimbabwe's Chinhoyi Caves to locate his errant twin brother, Stan, nothing could be furthest from reality. Not all are fairy tales and not all are long dead.

When his long time opponent, Daniel, is poised to take over his business empire, Shaun requires confirmation of Stan's vote. A distraught Natalie, Stan's travel friend, informs him he is missing. Believing his task is to deceive Daniel, Shaun travels to the caves and discovers the Sleeping Pool.

Its bottomless blue waters captivate him as much as the legends of the octopus and the crocodile. The enigmatic pool maintains its colour, levels and temperature constant throughout the year. And the caves hide a phantom tribe; according to local myth.

His world turns weirder each day. Mabo stalks him, claiming she's from the tribe, declaring him dead. She acts crazy but peers vow she's sane. Shaun discovers she's neither. Natalie is haunted by nightmares of the pool that drive her into his arms and his heart. Paul, his guide, warns him of danger but is silenced by a flying spear. The underground tribe bays for blood – they don't care whose blood.

The secret of the caves is the key to his survival. But there's only one way to find it – a suicidal dive into the pool. Failure means death for his brother and Natalie and victory for Daniel.

As ancient myths and legends blur with reality, Shaun questions his priorities and discovers the myth he should be in control; in particular, of his heart, to be a fallacy.

The Sleeping Pool is the first book in the Destination Series trailing the brothers on their pursuit of self discovery across Africa.
