Review quote

"A remarkable personal story of lies, greed and corruption amidst the cultivation of fear and violence that marked an increasingly malevolent dictatorship...Forna offers a human account of Sierra Leone's tragedy that does much to remedy a media image of a faraway country that suffers a bizarre fate at the hands of inscrutable rebels."
