This is a story set in modern Africa. It is the story of the struggle between two men. There is an old saying: "War creates more scoundrels than it kills". A familiar old saw but probably true. The story begins in the small, defiant, war-torn southern African country then known as Rhodesia during their bloody bush war against communist-tinged nationalist forces. But the story isn't about esoteric geo-politics during the cold war, it is about the hard men galvanized by the corrosive effects of war, tribalism, ambition, gut-level malevolence and revenge. In Africa, scoundrels abound in all colors. Like all wars, the war attracted all types of men: adventurers, war profiteers, professional soldiers, opportunists, and of course the true believers, both black and white. The Rhodesian War had them all in spades. One is an American leading African troops in the bush war. Another is a Chinese-trained guerrilla commander he clashes with during the final months of the war. That small, bloody battle in the bush will have profound effects on both men for many years. The war sets the stage, but the bloody climax comes many years later. Both men have chosen their paths, neither thought they would ever meet again. But now it is 20 years later and the American is plying his trade for a ruthless, shadowy, Arab arms dealer who also has a lucrative gem smuggling operation in the always dangerous Congo. But there is a problem in the Congo so the Arab sends his best "expeditor" to solve the problem. The American solves the problem but soon finds himself enmeshed in another more serious problem -- the illicit trade in nuclear materials. He reluctantly joins the search for the nuclear contraband - preferring not to go to prison for gem smuggling - and ends up in the one place he never wanted to return to -- Zimbabwe, formerly known as Rhodesia.
