The mild-mannered Richard stands to answer any and all questions posed by the three intimidating judges that also act as jury in the Sembeke justice system. This starts as a narrative device, with the judges as surrogates for the reader, but is abruptly abandoned for other methods.
The subtext for many of his other actions is conspicuously missing—even for a genre thriller—but these are the psychological jungles that the novel prefers not tread. Richard joins the Peace Corps, and through the machinations of diplomacy is assigned to Sembeke, a country with a French colonial past and a complex Islamic future.
Sharing some similarities both geographical and agricultural with Madagascar, Sembeke is just exotic enough to not make its sensuous trappings too distracting from the political facets. A redeeming novel about the difficulties that nations and individuals face when making a future out of difficult pasts. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.

He merely wanted to change careers, to indulge his life long dream of becoming a teacher even though it meant giving up a successful career in administration for New York State. As the story opens, Richard is waiting to testify in an inquest into the death of his native born girlfriend Caroline and wondering if he will be able to leave the country and start his new career as a teacher in the United States.
Richard has much reason to worry. Although he knows his girlfriend committed suicide, he also realizes she was a secret agent of the ASN, the feared National Security Agency of Sembeke, spying on the Peace Corps volunteers for the new military government which has promised to islamify the nation. Does Carolines shadowy security agency want to blame him for her death? Do they want the Peace Corps volunteers kicked out?
