Overview

An American journalist, Tom Craig, visits Malawi ostensibly to cover a string of murders purportedly committed by a leopard, but actually to rekindle a passionate affair, Jocelyn (Joss) Hazen, without telling his bush-pilot girlfriend. Maggie.

What's so special about Joss? Here's how Tom describes her: "If Jocelyn is consummately beautiful, she is also consummately perverse, the most difficult, the most damnably vexing woman I have ever met. But she gets away with it."

So Tom goes questing in Malawi. But it will not be easy to be alone with Joss in a place where an American ambassador's wife is a celebrity. Especially when, having suffered an accident, she's in a fragile state. When they meet, Tom realizes she doesn't recognize him. But hold on! Is she really Joss? Or an impostor who resembles her?

Tom has to know. And if she's an impostor, what happened to Joss?

Meet the Author

Fred Hunter first encountered Africa as a US Information Service officer in the Congo, opening an American Cultural Center in the Equateur, its remotest region, then fleeing when rebellion engulfed the country. Later he served as The Christian Science Monitor's Nairobi-based Africa Correspondent, covering sub-Saharan Africa. Those experiences led to his story collection Africa, Africa!


PBS produced Fred's drama The Hemingway Play. For that network he also wrote Lincoln and the War Within about the Fort Sumter crisis. That project led to his recent novel Abe and Molly: The Lincoln Courtship.
