Abstract:

Journalist Peter Maguire has been kidnapped in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu. He does not know where he is or what is going to happen to him. As the days go by, his fear is shot through with remorse for the mistakes of his past... Peter's mother Nina comes to Somalia to wait for her son's release. His plight forces her to relive another trauma - the fatal shooting in Liberia of Shaun Ridge, a young photographer she once loved, and Peter's real father... Abdi, a Somali teenager working with Peter's captors, strikes up a tenuous friendship with the prisoner and decides to help him escape... Three people must journey into one of the world's most dangerous places, the human mind, to answer the question: are we ever truly free?
