Night Jasmine Man
Acclaimed composer Richard Turnbull journeys to an island off the East African coast to investigate the disappearance of his young daughter and becomes enmeshed in a nightmare world of hard drugs, ivory poaching and sexual intrigue. Turnbull is helped in his quest by his daughter's young friend Sabine, by the angelic Night Jasmine Man of the book's title, and by Gretchen, the mysterious island enchantress. As the story moves rapidly to its apocalyptic climax Turnbull clashes violently with the islandAs ruler, the ruthless but charming Sultan - and is forced to confront the islandAs demons head-on. At once mystical, tender and sensuous, this compelling novel poses questions about the nature of evil and demonstrates a passionate belief in the redeeming power of love.
