The Rift Valley Province of Kenya is an opposition stronghold, their secret eviction is ordered. The regime is clinging to power, ethnic hatred is rampant. In this first novel from a new Kenyan writer, an unlikely trio emerges: a foul character seeking to redeem himself, a young smart lawyer drawn in against her will, another lawyer not averse to bending the law to achieve his ends. The effort to call a halt is a powerful fictional evocation of attempts to halt an overwheening regime.
