Con man Max O’Brien gets pulled into a grisly conspiracy while investigating his lover’s murder.
Distraught by the murder of Tanzanian lawyer and ex-lover Valéria Michieka and her daughter Sophie, Max O’Brien travels to Tanzania to track down those responsible. What starts as a fight for justice quickly becomes entangled with the persecution of albinos in the East African state. Thought by some to have supernatural powers, many albinos find themselves targeted for their body parts, and Max has reason to think that Valéria and Sophie were killed because of her legal work defending albinos’ rights and safety.
Did the lawyers’ fight against this horrendous business upset the human traffickers? Max’s search for the truth about their deaths is filled with unknowns, each more impenetrable than the last.
