Summary
"A novel that opens with a young man's murder on the day of the tumultuous 2007 election in Kenya, but then goes into the history of his family and of the splintered African nation around them--in scenes stretching back to a shocking political assassination in 1969 and the Mau Mau uprisings against British colonial rule in the 1950s"--
Summary
The violent murder of her brother on the streets of Nairobi triggers long-untouched memories and unexpected events for his grieving sister, Ajany, from the flight of their mercurial mother and the arrival of a young Englishman at their home to the reopening of a cold case by a hardened policeman and a vengeance plot by an all-seeing Trader.
