William Faraday, a raw young recruit to television news, longs to join the close jealous band of foreign correspondents-- that exclusive, hard drinking, hard swearing, whoring world of the cynical professional. His break comes when he is sent to cover a Marxist coup on a tiny coral island in the Indian Ocean just off the east coast of Africa. But Faraday is quickly disillusioned. Nothing matches his expectations. The Marxist takeover is less of a coup than a hiccough, and the famous globetrotting war correspondents seem nothing more than middle-aged, drunken hacks. But history turns in a second and Faraday finds himself suddenly in love and in the middle of the biggest story in Africa. His innocence is lost in the violence of war. Faraday is bloodied. Brutality, murder and rape all play their part in a plot that ends in a deadly explosive game of hide and seek. It is a story that is already secretly happening in Africa. It is a story that could hit your headlines tomorrow.
