Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Love of country prevails over romantic love, as award-winning author Cook peels back the political machinations in a country roiled with violent upheavals, deception, and betrayal in which international aid is not the panacea it might seem. While chronological shifts may be confusing, Cook takes on international-relations issues here to riveting effect.” Booklist
“Cook displays an excellent grasp of the culture of African villages and of NGOs.” Publishers Weekly
“Cook’s hallmark format of the present mixing with the past is evident. Less a murder mystery, the story is more about love and betrayal…[with] evocative, descriptive writing, a narrative that maintains interest, and a plot-twist ending. It will appeal to both the author’s fans and readers who enjoy more literary and politically oriented stories.” Library Journal
