Raphael Undu is 13 years old, a farmer’s son in Congo’s rebellious, mineral-rich east. When war scatters his family, he must protect his little sister, Keisha, and try to reunite them. He is a tough and resourceful boy, but ranged against him are rebels and a renegade army, vying for control of mineral wealth beyond imagination.While Raphael’s personal crisis spirals out of control, photographer James Falkus follows clues to the Congo, hoping to piece together the puzzle surrounding his birth parents. James, however, is opening a Pandora’s box, with devastating and far-reaching consequences for everyone around him.All the while, the lives of ordinary people are being manipulated by powerful national and global forces locked in a struggle for control of the country and its natural riches, and playing a high-stakes poker game for global influence. Only one thing is certain—nothing and no one here are what they seem.    

JJ Cowan has been a business journalist for more than thirty years, writing on shipping, healthcare, manufacturing and defence. Since 1995 he has covered the communications industry worldwide. He holds an MA in Politics & International Relations from Aberdeen University, Scotland.

    One of the most thought provoking books I’ve read in a while. JJ Cowan has obviously done his research and his highly descriptive style transports the reader into the heart of the story within the first few paragraphs. If you like books that make you think, open your eyes, but also entertain you and keep you turning the pages, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.
