Amid the violence of Kenya's upcoming presidential elections, Joshua Otieng is caught between the brutal realities of life in the slum and his dream of a return to the glories of his ancestral past. Mayasa is a young woman he believes could share his dreams, but the tide of tribal conflict is too strong to resist.
Journalist Mark Riley travels to East Africa to find a missing orphan, and to escape the pain of his past. Two women - feisty anthropologist Charlotte Manning and beautiful, mysterious Kazlana Ramanova - rekindle his interest in the world.
On a journey to the Serengeti, they each discover that there is more to fear than just the wildlife ...
Frank Coates's compelling novel is at once a thrilling adventure and a poignant exploration of grief, family and identity, set against the upheavals of twenty-first century Kenya.
