Abstract:

A gripping thriller set in Africa about a young aid worker in danger and the lengths to which her family will go to save her. Edge-of-your-seat suspense combines with a compelling family drama in this story of power, greed and salvation.

Thirty-year-old Tessa Lowell has a PhD in psychology and is working in Uganda to research the effects of PTSD and war on child soldiers. She joins a delegation travelling across the Congolese border, deep into the jungle, for peace talks with Joseph Kony, notorious leader of the Lord's Resistance Army. At the camp Tessa meets thirteen-year-old Francis, already an experienced soldier and survivor of violent raids. The talks stall and the camp is attacked by other rebels who kidnap Tessa, believing she is a medical doctor and can treat a dying major's gunshot wound. Isolated in an increasingly volatile situation, Tessa tries to form a bond with Francis. In Melbourne, Tessa's parents are notified of the abduction, but learn there is little government agencies can do. Desperate, they contact Tessa's brother Stephen, an astute if manipulative businessman based in Cape Town. He agrees to search for Tessa - and pursue his own agenda. As Tessa's time runs out, her family begins to fracture. Should you betray your corrupt brother if he tries to save you? Should you ruin your son if he destroys other people's lives?--Provided by publisher.
