There are few books with the subject heading, "Tanzania -- fiction". This is one of them. That's why I read it.
Rutledge Jordan's story speaks to the very core of our choices. The parallel chapters of Jordan's past are artfully interwoven as answers to questions raised in this gripping page turner. A gritty, political expose of a modern yet ancient culture. A monsterous must for summer reading. Lather on the suntan oil, you will read it straight to the end. Wow! Thankyou Carter Coleman.a
