 About the Book 

Philippe is sent by his master to London to do a job. The job has an awkward name: Lumumba.

It is a name which takes us back to the Congo of 1960, a name which stands for all of Africa and the tragedy of an entire continent. In a world where idealism has no place Philippe must negotiate some sort of peace for himself and throw the gears of the death machine into reverse. An atmosphere of foreboding hovers over the narrative as Philippe plays a cat and mouse game with the Zairean Security Service. Miscalculation could lead to his death or that of his wife and small son. The rules keep changing and Philippe is drawn into a chilling endgame.
