Lonely, dispirited and empty of inspiration in New York, bestselling author Craig Mellow jumps at the chance to return home to Zimbabwe when approached by the World Bank to undertake a secret mission. Under cover of writing a book on Africa in collaboration with beautiful young photographer Sally-Anne Jay, his real task is to investigate ivory poaching and suspected Russian involvement in a plot to overthrow the government. Back in Zimbabwe, exhilarated and full of hope once more, Mellow sets about restoring the derelict Ballantyne family estates only to be caught up in a savage conflict between the ruling Shona and the disenfranchised Matabele. Behind this bloody tribal war is a power-crazed fanatic who would sell his people into slavery and plunge his country into a new Dark Age. And only Craig Mellow can stop him...
