Set in Kenya in the 1970s, a young coffee farmer believes her husband may have gotten into ivory smuggling—before she can confront him, he is killed in what looks like an accident but may be a murder. Her investigation in this leads to a succession of people whose lives intertwine and intersect.


“Wiley immerses us in non-Western cultures . . . we desperately need to know more about if we hope to create a globally conscious American fiction for the next century.” —Charles Johnson
