Brilliant young New Zealand physicist, Dr. Brandon Maine, is unexpectedly engulfed by an unknown family history in German colonial East Africa. Lured by the mysterious Rachel, his exploratory visit morphs into chaos when he stumbles across unlikely friends whose discovery of an enormous uranium field threatens them all. In the midst of gathering evil, Bran is swept into the vortex of an Africa he never knew existed-a world of the supernatural and atrocities that have shackled the continent for generations and almost destroy him.
Drawing from these ancient unseen powers, rapacious politician Gabriel Iramo will stop at nothing-including genocide-to gain control of the country and plunge a continent back into the old ways. The shocking discovery that there is no safe middle ground shatters Brans laissez-faire approach to life while holding the clue to Africas revival.
But to live the adventure and be true to its demands will take all that he has and alter the course of nations.
