Another extraordinary book by Peter Godwin, the author of When a Crocodile Eats the Sun. I was so mesmerized by that book that I read this, his previous book. This tells the story of his growing up in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) against a background of terrorism and a country beginning to fall apart. A page turning thriller. I can't get enough of this story. I've just requested his third book, the one between these two, called Rhodesians Never Die.
