In a remote area of Northern Kenya, the region's most dedicated activist, Tessa Quayle, has been found brutally murdered. Tessa's widower, mild-mannered and unambitious Justin Quayle, is one of the British High Commissioners stationed in Kenya. This career diplomat's equilibrium has been exploded by the loss of the woman he was deeply devoted to. Determined to "finish what she started," Justin embarks on a crash course to learn about the pharmaceutical industry, whose crimes Tessa was on the verge of uncovering, and journeys across two continents in search of the truth.
