Marc Royce stares down from the helicopter on the Rift Valley slashing across Africa like a scar. Tribal feuds, drought, and dislocation have left their devastation. And he sees a new wound—a once-dormant volcano oozing molten lava across the dry landscape—and clouds of ash obscure his vision. His undercover assignment is similarly obscured. Supposedly dispatched to audit a relief organization’s accounts, Marc finds himself amid the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps caught in a stranglehold of corruption and ruthlessness.

But his true task relates to the area’s reserves of once-obscure metals now indispensable to high-tech industry. The value of this rare earth inflames tensions on the world’s stage as well as among warring tribes. When an Israeli medical administrator, Kitra, seeks Marc’s help with her humanitarian efforts, they forge an unexpected link between impoverished African villages and another Silicon Valley rising in the Israeli desert. Precious metals and inventive minds promise new opportunities for prosperity, secure futures, and protection of valuable commodities from terrorists. As Marc prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes a chance to restore justice to this troubled land. This time, he may have gone too far.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rick | 2/19/2014

    " Not a bad read, but I was hoping for more. The ending seemed rather anticlimactic. On a positive note, his portrayal of Kenya and her people was very strong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 1/28/2014

    " This was an interesting read. It makes me wonder what might truly be the setting in Nairobi. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Welte | 1/21/2014

    " Good read. First Davis Bunn novel. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/14/2014

    " This would make a great movie - lots of action, a romance, the UN. An interesting book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/6/2014

    " Davis Bunn does an excellent job of drawing you into the story and wondering where it will go. Lots of twists and turns with a satisfying ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Linton | 12/10/2013

    " I sure hope this isn't the last Marc Royce book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Donhiser | 10/27/2013

    " A different kind of book. from what I hear Bunn must write some "girly romance" books. This is not one of them. Good action, decent hero and enjoyable setting. I am looking forward to reading the first book of this series. Marc Royce is a hero worth following "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 10/8/2013

    " I like Bunn's style. He avoids the hackneyed copy most Christian writers feel compelled to drop in every book just to make sure they've witnessed. But I have troubled staying with the stories. They can get to be too inside spook world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 10/2/2013

    " Enjoyed the story, plot, and the action. I never really bought the love story angle though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyndi | 3/9/2013

    " LOVED this book! Davis Bunn makes you feel like you're covered in ash and in the middle of the action. :) Looking forward to the next one! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lelia Cavaleri | 1/4/2013

    " This book suffers from genre confusion "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nanette | 12/30/2012

    " Wow! I felt like I was in Africa. I could smell the ash and smoke from the volcano; I could see the baobob trees and the poverty of the refugee camps. Mr. Bunn instills hope in the reader. Despite the atrocities in Kenya, the Gospel is spreading. "
