In the setting of real-life Zaire and the Great Lakes region of central Africa, three bank investigators provoke retaliation by corrupt government officials. An attractive and skilled fraud investigator from Mauritius finds herself working closely, perhaps too closely, with a charming but discredited banker from California and a Zairian lawyer with intriguing skills. The overnight disappearance of hospitalized infants and the flourishing clandestine market in coffee, valuable minerals and ores along the eastern frontier of the country, gradually coalesce to form an ugly puzzle. After government secrets are revealed by the investigators, a suicide thrusts the American to the top position of the African bank where he has been given asylum. The number of abducted infants grows, promising developments appear to bring hope, cruel events turn upon them, and unexpected moves by three powerful women working behind the scenes change everything.

An incredible story with amazing characters that I came to really care about. I was whisked away to foreign lands right along with Gabriel and eagerly followed him right down the rabbit hole...
What a fun and informative read. This fictional account of a very real problem had all that I enjoy in a good book. My eyes were opened to what has been going on in Zaire for years. The story included intrigue woven into relationships which continued to surprise and entertain the reader right to the very end.
