Paperback / softback
UK Publication Date

A charity institution in Kenya has been left an astronomical amount of money. But as Max Stafford discovers, investigating it becomes a lethal pastime.

The source of the 40 million fortune was unknown, a legacy wrapped in mystery. But the main beneficiary was a small college in the remote Rift Valley in Kenya. The heirs were the South African, Dirk Hendriks and the unknown, recently discovered descendant, Henry Hendrix from California.

Mild suspicion that Hendrix was an impostor led Max Stafford, security consultant, to Kenya. But the violent reaction to his arrival pointed to a sinister and far-reaching conspiracy far beyond mere greed.
