A powerful saga of an Asian family in Andaka, Africa, told through the life of Yuri Reka.

At the height of the struggle for independence from Britain, Yuri is a young, idealistic student, blinded by the notion of a free Andaka.

With African rule, however, the country changes for the worse. Drunk with power, the government becomes repressive and corrupt. Africanization policies force an exodus of Asians and Europeans.

A rebel movement emerges, sworn to overthrow the government. Guerilla attacks and assassinations aimed at destabilization become frequent and are met with even more brutal repression.

Now a young businessman - frustrated, disillusioned and angry, Yuri is recruited to join the rebels. He enlists for a critical mission, which if successful, would deal a severe blow to the government.

Overnight, he is plunged into a dark world of terror and violence. He becomes a killer, numb to the finality of death. Once the hunted, he is now the hunter, committed to the rebel movement.

But the President of Andaka has an informant buried deep within the command structure of the rebel leadership...

Found 'Intensity' to be an excellent read with a well paced, gripping story line. Found this book to be refreshingly different given the setting in Africa. Sacranie has a great writing style and for his first novel, this one is great. Liked the way the story built to the finality. Would definitely recommend this book.

Powerful story on the plight of the Asians and Europeans during the heyday of the struggle of the African countries for independence. Well written, excellent pace and unpredictable. Smooth writing style which holds reader interest throughout.
