 About the Book 

A distant and corrupt central government that skims off as much as a third of the billions earned each year from oil revenue, leaving the citizens of the tiny exclave of Cabinda impoverished, creates the perfect environment for an armed separatistMoreA distant and corrupt central government that skims off as much as a third of the billions earned each year from oil revenue, leaving the citizens of the tiny exclave of Cabinda impoverished, creates the perfect environment for an armed separatist struggle. FALC-UI are desperate to attract international attention, by attacking a heavily fortified oil and gas terminal, controlled by a company listed on the NYSE and protected by American mercenaries. But there are many others also dissatisfied with fifty years of injustice in Angola, and the guerrillas find friends at every turn. Caught in the middle and forced to take sides are ‘JC’ Cloete, ex-South African Special Forces soldier, and the mestiço journalist Fatima Moco. Then Dr. Daniela Russo discovers that the deadly Marburg fever may have resurfaced in the bush and everyone could be under threat.The tragic struggle for independence in Cabinda is one of Africa’s forgotten wars, but that does not diminish the dreams or the humanity of her people. When all of Africa’s strongmen are finally brought to account, the continent will find the peace that it deserves.
