Rogue intelligence officer Roland Nair lands in Freetown, Sierra Leone ostensibly to reunite with his friend Michael Adriko, an African claiming to have served the Ghanian Army, the Kuwaiti Emiri Guard and the Green Berets on a variety of mysterious missions. This post-9/11 tale of intrigue, romance and deception, obscures the truth as both characters are drawn into a tangle of violence and disconnection. ~ Reviewed by Amy Palmer
