A woman is shot dead in the open­ing scene of this story set in East Africa in the 1920s, but we don’t find out who she was or why she was killed un­til the fi­nal pages. Yet, this is more than a who­dun­nit.

Told from the per­spec­tive of a re­cently ar­rived 14-year-old Brit, it brings to life a fas­ci­nat­ing era of change in Kenya with vivid de­scrip­tions of the coun­try’s shim­mer­ing land­scape.
