In this romantic, suspenseful, and spellbinding novel, Nicholas Hershenow weaves a compelling story of a young American couple navigating the mysteries of love and family ties, and the labyrinth of Central Africa...

"Carefully detailed yet hazily dreamlike...Hershenow delivers a fictional meal as rich, spicy and mysterious as the 'bima', or stew of 'things', dished out by Will's Ngemban hosts." (Publishers Weekly)
