Product description

From the Publisher

This is a thrilling first novel from an author who has won
acclaim as a short-story teller, having won both the Bridport International
Short Story Competition and the Royal Society of Literature's VS Pritchett
Prize, and it shows in the pace, the tight plot and the sheer exuberance of
his writing. Jon knows his subject, Africa at it most beautiful and most
carnally violent, and he describes a galaxy of vivid characters with
insight and compassion. I hope you'll find much to savour in his book but
be warned: this is no mindless romp. The author spares nothing in
describing the excesses of a truly African civil war yet I bet you'll find
much to make you laugh.
If Wilbur Smith is the proud old lion of African thriller-writing, perhaps
he needs to watch this new challenge.

From the Back Cover

Boromundi, a small African state, ravaged by civil war...
Rebecca Wise and Annabel Mbanga, two young women on an outing, are dragged
from their minibus into the roadside mud, raped, and horribly mutilated.
Devastated by the death of the girl he loves but unaware of the crime
behind it, Armstrong McKay flies out to bring Rebecca's body home. Amid the
dancing, drink and catharsis of Rebecca's wake, he meets Temba Mbanga,
Annabel's husband, who reveals the brutal truth.
Faced with a weak government and the severed stump of the Boromundian legal
system, the two men wrestle with a stark choice: turn aside as the
authorities wash their hands of murder, or mete out justice themselves.
In the darkness of the early morning rain, surrounded by the grating cry of
Kisasi the Justice Bird, they make their decision: to track down the
murderers one by one - and execute them.
Only then will the Justice Bird be silent...
