One of the people Tom Hardy interviewed for Poaching Wars was award-winning investigative journalist Julian Rademeyer, the author of Killing for Profit – Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade. Information about the book and the issue can be found on his website, where you can also read an extract.
Killing for Profit is a meticulous, devastating and revelatory account of one of the world’s most secretive trades. It exposes poachers, scoundrels, gangsters, conmen, mercenaries, killers, gun-runners, diplomats, government officials and kingpins behind the slaughter. And it follows the bloody trail from the frontlines 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 …
Killing for Profit was shortlisted for the 2013 Alan Paton Award, South Africa’s most prestigious literary prize for non-fiction. The book is published by Zebra Press, an imprint of Random House Struik.
Tom & Charlotte bought a house recently, and they were apparently happy enough with their real estate agent to write a testimonial on his webiste:
To rent a three storey house for six to twelve months, then purchase a property for renovation in mid to late 2012. As actors, both clients’ demanding schedules meant they were regularly away travelling in short stints, and did not have much time to spare to view properties.
“Thomas Rose have been a godsend during the process of finding a new home. After gauging what we were looking for in a home, they viewed properties on our behalf, sending us videos, extra photos and a detailed professional opinion for us to peruse. They highlighted pros and cons and made suggestions of how properties could be developed, entered negotiations, fielded emails and tricky professionals! For us it was important, when working so hard to have someone to relieve us of the pressure of looking for a home – and Thomas Rose did just that; they liaised with estate agents when we were in different time zones, they took care of all the nitty-gritty, they talked us through any industry jargon and were there to support us every step of the way to finding our perfect home… which we did! Best of all they were good fun, friendly and understanding of the often emotional journey you go through trying to find the right place to make home. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.” – T.H. & C.R.
