From the author of The Cone of Silence and Village of StarsCaught in the crossfire of a successful military coup in an emerging African state, Bill Rutherford finds a political stowaway on board his charter aircraft. The stowaway is discovered and Rutherford thrown into jail to await a hideous death for 'treachery' to the new regime.

When oil and gold and discovered, the High Commissioner is delighted to see bright new vistas opening up for British trade. But the reality is starker and infinitely more terrifying.
