"From internationally celebrated author, and inspired by real events, this is a landmark novel about good and evil, and the inexhaustible power of love. Anna Emerson's life is turned upside down when a stranger hands her a plane ticket to the Congo. The newly independent country is in turmoil, Simba rebels are on the move - but the invitation holds a precious clue to the whereabouts of her estranged father. Dan Miller signs up as a mercenary commando to fight the communist uprising. He supports the cause, but that's not really why he's there. A devastating tragedy has taken all meaning from his life, and he's got nothing left to lose. In the Congo, Dan's belief in the war begins to crumble. Anna heads deeper into danger as she travels from a grand colonial mansion to an abandoned hotel on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, to a leprosy mission in the jungle and beyond. Their two paths collide through circumstances more extraordinary than fate. On a journey into the heart of darkness, humans are pushed to become demons or heroes, and lives are lost or reclaimed. From internationally celebrated author, and inspired by real events, this is a landmark novel about good and evil, and the inexhaustible power of love."
