The Liquidator is kind of like a spy novel and kind of like a thriller. Only the main character is not a spy but an accountant working for a company that manages the winding up of affairs for companies that are being shut down for bad debts.
Bwana Paul (I don’t recall last names being mentioned for any of the characters) is in an unnamed African country bordering on Rwanda near the time of the conflict between the Hutus and Tutsis. He and his assistant are assigned to untangle the affairs of a company that has defaulted on a debt to the national bank. The company, New Mwanchi, fights back with lawsuits and all the legal delays at their disposal. But more troubling is the strange secrecy surrounding just what it is that they actually do.
The Liquidator is not a terribly fast-paced book. Much of the action happens “off-screen” as it were, and Paul only finds out about it when somebody else tells him. Nevertheless, the suspense builds relentlessly throughout. An election is held in the country, there is violence in refugee camps near the borders, and AIDS is in full swing. But why are Paul’s friends and acquaintances in the expatriate community all dying in accidents or disappearing one after the other? And what does this have to do with the New Mwanchi company, if anything? And why are New Mwanchi employees dying of a form of AIDS that progresses much faster than ordinary AIDS?
A very good read that kept me interested to the end.
the book is about the life in Africa midst all the corruption and mysteries. the story is well developed but what i enjoyed most is the style of writing! there are very few authors these days who know how to write and it is s shear to come across one. i would recommend this book to all the readers who are into thriller and quality reading. loved it!
