The author clearly knows whereof he writes. His book has a strong narrative and contains many insights into both expatriate and Tanzanian lives and problems. He highlights a real problem - the plight of albinos in a black society - but suggests no easy short-term solutions. Well worth reading!

expat in Africa LIKES this BOOK!
3 February 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
I have worked as an American in Africa, the Balkans and the Middle East since 1985. I am currently reading George McBean's amazing story of an expatriate in Africa who is stay-at-home dad seeking to uncover dark secrets of sacrificial killings of children with Albinism in Tanzania. The book is a page turner about the search to dispell witchcraft and how one man gets caught in that search in a very personal way. His writing style is easy on the eye, he keeps the story moving and sometimes my kindle is too slow to turn the page to see what is next. I enjoy some of the small details he brings out..the smell of the room or the feel of the breeze. Thanks for this book, George, a clever story with just enough factual information to make it this hard to accept story believable. Whether you have lived in Africa or not, you will be shocked as well as entertained by this wonderful book. You may also be moved to find out more about sacrificial killings and witchcraft and the role they play -- it is a complex and scary phenomenon and George gives you a glimpse into it.
