You need to listen to this audiobook if you want to understand the backdrop of history that created the fertile soil for today's homegrown terrorist group-Boko Haram-to literally spring up overnight and within half a dozen years bring the most populous country in Africa to the greatest crisis in its history.
The story is told through the eyes of fortune seeking engineer Paul Jeffries-out to make millions on a state of the art telecommunications project in Nigeria-who must confront his own demons by agreeing to search for the American ambassador's daughter, Maureen Cahill, who has fled the relative safety of the embassy in Lagos to the besieged and shrinking rebel enclave of Biafra to help refugees in the mid 1960's civil war. The journey will take them both to the darkest and most dangerous mangrove infested corner of one of Africa's bloodiest civil wars. The trek will test their commitment to aiding the country, their dreams for nation building, and their growing love for each other.
You need to hear this audible book if you want to have an insight on how the events taking place in Nigeria today are a microcosm of the turmoil taking place today across Africa and the Middle East.
