Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Ten Weeks in Africa"

A vivid, gripping novel about corruption, integrity and good intentions gone wrong, set in an African country on the brink of civil war, for fans of John le Carre, Graham Greene and William Boyd. What does it cost to do the right thing? Your time? Your money? Your career? Your family? Ed Caine and Beatrice Kamunda just want to make a difference. From their modest NGO office in the African city of Kisuru, they plan to spend millions improving the lives of those who need it most. Yet they are working in a country where altruistic dreams can get caught in a web of corruption and violence. Can Ed trust the overtures of politician Pamela Abasi? And should Bea take the obvious affection of slum boy-turned businessman Solomon Ouko at face value? When rebel fighters in the hills have their own plans for change, it is no longer just the slum inhabitants whose lives hang in the balance . . . Powerful, timely and unflinching, Ten Weeks in Africa shows that even the strongest convictions can be tested to the limit, while love may survive the most dangerous terrain.
