This dark, suspenseful novel tells the story of a fictitious West African country caught in the grip of civil war. The dispassionate and deadpan narrator, Asante Kroma, is a former head of Secret Services who finds himself living with the corpse of the dictator who once ruled his nation with an iron fist. Through a series of flashbacks and letters penned by the dead man, we discover the role of the French shadow leader, whose ongoing ambition to exploit the natural resources of the country knows no limits. But as these powerful men use others as pawns in a violent real-life chess match, it is the murder of six-year-old Kaveena, and her mother’s quest for vengeance, that brings about a surprise reckoning.
