Wisely Holladay introduces his book about African political intrigue with a map, showing not only the countries to be a part of his story, but also the contiguous countries that influence the action. He follows this with a Prologue that takes place in 1983 in the Lupane District (hence the source of the title) of Zimbabwe where a Gukurahundi massacre of the inhabitants of a small village Matabeleland North by Robert Mugabe and his North Korean trained battalion during Africa's various moves to establish independent countries leaves on a small child, Patrick Khumalo, as the survivor. We learn that Patrick was raised by white Rhodesian settlers (who happen to be the aunt and uncle of Joshua Denham). The story jumps to 2012 and Patrick, having grown up with the impulsive Constance who is now a classical violinist living in Austria, is a Major in Zimbabwe's Central Intelligence Organization and Director of the Archives for Mugabe's government. with secrets.
In Washington, D.C., Joshua Denham has become a newly wealthy man with historically important, Austrian/American parentage, decorated former Special Forces Marine, and world traveler, but retired from the USMC and focusing on political aspirations. At an Austrian Embassy concert where Constance Traun (his cousin) is performing, a woman who's been haunting him for the past year--Devon Kerr, a private banker he last saw in Kyrgyzstan while handing Joshua the papers that would establish his new wealth--is also at the concert, raising old images of Joshua's past. Add another major player in Roger Smyth-Townsend, Constance's estranged father, and after Constance's abrupt departure from Washington DC, Joshua gets a desperate call from Roger: Constance is in trouble. Joshua flies to meet Roger in South Africa, only to find that Roger has his own dark secret. Devon finds herself drawn after them to an abandoned farmhouse in Zimbabwe's Matabeleland District, and an explosive reckoning with the ghosts of the Rhodesian Bush War.
Few novels move so quickly as this surprising debut thriller. Not only do we meet credible characters about whom we care (and can easily anticipate further adventures with them) but we also learn a lot about African politics form a man whose writing indicates he has first hand information about his story. It works well and serves as a welcome opener for a series that holds terrific promise. Grady Harp, October 14
