Derek Strangely runs a safari tour company with his side-kick
Pedro, a Tutsi with a sad history. After stumbling upon a mauled
Congolese child soldier they also find what he had hidden - three
large diamonds. The diamonds belonged to General Cosmo Zomba wa
Zomba who presides over the Congolese jungle with his Corporal,
Duke Amin thwarting the efforts of the UN Peacekeepers at every
turn. Hired by the mysterious diamond merchant, Richard Katz, Derek
and Pedro go to the Walikale region of the Congo closely followed
by the young and idealistic Natalie Cox who is determined to reveal
Katz's illegal trade. Kidnapped by Cosmo and force-marched into the
wilderness the four hostages become pawns in a dangerous game. It
seems that the murderous Madame Azziza Nshuti is at the heart of
everything. What is she up to? Is there a link between her and
Katz? Can Cosmo trust her? Can anyone trust her? Has she corrupted
members of the UN? As Lake Kiva threatens to release a deadly gas
over the inhospitable terrain, the hostages lives are in the
balance as they try to escape their captors and avoid the
drug-fuelled, violent and unpredictable child soldiers. Will they
get away before Cosmo and a rival war-lord join forces to destroy
the UN camp? How far will General Cosmo go to retrieve his diamonds
when he discovers Derek's secret? Fast-paced, gripping and a
genuine page-turner, Cummings' action adventure marks the arrival
of an author who compares to Wilbur Smith at the height of his
