Overview

Set amongst the British expatriate settler community in Kenya, a powerful novel from someone who lived there through those turbulent times, based on real life events leading up to, and during, the Mau Mau war and its aftermath. The dissolute lifestyle of some of the white settlers, which notoriously involved,or led to, rape, murder and kinky sex is dealt with in some depth. If you want a quick and easy primer to begin to understand those times, with the forced resettlement, repression, detention and torture of suspected terrorists and their supporters, which framed the lives of some of the main characters, and which helped shape the background of today's Kenya, and many of US President Barak Obama's family, then this may be the book for you.
