Avoiding the trauma of World War I, Piet Barol heads into Africa's greatest forest. With a business to build and secrets to escape, he's running out of time to make his own luck. His African guides have reasons of their own for taking him to their ancestral lands, where he finds a prize beyond his wildest imaginings. To get it, he must use every weapon at his disposal, but everyone around him becomes a suspect, and Piet's gamble sets him on a collision course with forces he cannot control.
"A highly original book. Part magic realism, part fable, part history and wholly engrossing."—The Times (London)
