For countless Somali asylum seekers, the Dadaab refugee camps have provided crucial shelter from war and drought. Yet they have never been safe. When four American camp volunteers leave for a well-earned rest, bandits hijack their car, and they awake hooded and bound. Hostages. Ex-CIA agent John Wells is persuaded to Kenya to find them. But Wells is no expert on kidnappings or East Africa. The clock is ticking, and the White House is edging closer to an invasion of Somalia. If the hostages aren’t found, they’ll be killed and America could end up in a war it never should have started…
Everything rests on Wells. But is this mission too much, even for him?
