Can the fragments of this mystery ever be pieced together? When a journalist and four teenagers go missing in the middle of Africa there are few clues as to what might have happened to them. Ella, the sister of one of those missing, helps Inspector Murothi follow the confusing trail in a brilliant story that is as thrilling as it is moving.
