When Josh Hagarty is recruited by the charitable organization NewAfrica to manage a farming project in an underdeveloped African country, he signs on, figuring that he can put his newly acquired graduate degree in engineering to good use. However, when Josh gets situated in Africa, he finds that NewAfrica may not be the philanthropic charity it purports to be. 

With the help of Annika Gritdal, a beautiful Scandinavian aid worker, and journalist J. B. Flannery, Josh must fight to uncover the truth behind NewAfrica. In doing so, the trio must struggle to survive by evading those who are trying to prevent them from uncovering a secret—a secret that might just get them killed.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Kevin Collins provides straightforward depictions… Collins also adds notes of menace in his voicings.”

    AudioFile

  • “Mills creates a great lead character in Hagarty; we root for him as he descends into a quagmire from which there may be no return. Charitable giving meets The Firm in this riveting page-turner.”

    Booklist

  • “A fast-paced, well-written, well-structured book. The motivations of the characters, both the good guys and the reprehensible madmen they’re up against, are explained, so it’s clear what’s on the line for each of them…Really good.”

    Midwest Book Review

  • “Mills’ prosaic talents are every bit as sharp and clear as his apparent visions into the future…Lords of Corruption comes at a particularly important time, and while it wisely does not attempt to promulgate any particular message, there is much food for thought —subtle and otherwise—presented here.”

    BookReporter.com

  • “A thriller in every sense of the word and is really quite interesting in its own way.”

    " Not as good as his last one. A quick almost summer read where nothing really unexpected happens. Set in Africa where truth is almost certainly worse than fiction, for the most part I think I can leave that continent off my travel itinerary. "

    " I am a fan of Kyle Mills and his "spy" thriller type novels. This is his latest and it's a new character.

    April 09: Finished this book.....was an okay thriller about corruption in aid organizations in Africa. I didn't think it was as good as previous books by this author. "
