For fans of smart foreign crime books, an action-packed crime story in an unusual setting--Kenya--and rooted in fascinating African history
In Madison, Wisconsin, it's a big deal when African peace activist Joshua Hakizimana--famous for saving hundreds of people from the Rwandan genocide--accepts a position at the university. Then a young girl is found murdered on his doorstep.
For local police Detective Ishmael--an African American in an "extremely white" town--it seems like the kind of crime that happens in an area where the Ku Klux Klan still holds rallies. But then he gets a mysterious phone call: "If you want the truth, you must go to its source. The truth is in the past. Come to Nairobi."
It's the beginning of a journey that will take Ishmael to a place still vibrating from the surrounding genocide, where big-oil money rules and where the local cops shoot first and ask questions later.
And although it's the land of his ancestors, it becomes a disorienting and terrifying quest through the slums of Nairobi, a place where knowing the truth about history can kill you.
