News that six patients held in a highly guarded military mental hospital have staged a daring escape rocks the small Central African nation of Manabi. The news turns bizarre when investigative journalist, Jack Sila uncovers the identity of one of the patients - Mrs Anna Molandi, wife of a former Attorney General of the neighbouring country of Zamboha, and who was believed to have died together with her husband and other senior government and military officials thirteen years ago in a plane crash. When Jack pursues Anna in her escape to Zamboha, he learns that the only link to the past is a young woman called Gabi on death row for a crime she did not commit. Through the help of a retired brigadier, he discovers that beneath the numerous, seemingly viable company mergers and takeovers, lies a sinister conspiracy to take over the entire central African region. Only one man can stop the takeover - a man named Hawk; and he died thirteen years ago, or did he? In the wings of this intriguing drama awaits a ruthless tyrant who will stop at nothing. He has set his target. He has no record of failure.
