Publisher's Summary

Marc Royce stares down from the helicopter on the Rift Valley slashing across Africa like a scar. Tribal feuds, drought, and dislocation have left their devastation. And he sees a new wound – a once-dormant volcano oozing molten lava across the dry landscape – and clouds of ash obscure his vision. His undercover assignment is similarly obscured.

Supposedly, dispatched to audit a relief organization’s accounts, Marc finds himself amid the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps caught in a stranglehold of corruption and ruthlessness. But his true task relates to the area’s reserves of once-obscure metals now indispensible to high-tech industry. The value of this rare earth inflames tensions on the world’s stage as well as among warring tribes. When an Israeli medical administrator, Kitra, seeks Marc’s help with her humanitarian efforts, they forge an unexpected link between impoverished African villages and another Silicon Valley rising in the Israeli desert. Precious metals and inventive minds promise new opportunities for prosperity, secure futures, and protection of valuable commodities from terrorists. As Marc prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes a chance to restore justice to this troubled land. This time, he may have gone too far.

    "Great 2nd book in Marc Royce Series"

    Davis Bunn's second book in Marc Royce series is another hit. Published by Brilliance Audio and Bethany House in book and digital format.

    New narrator, Phil Gigante, doesn't miss a step as this time we find Marc in Africa where volcano caused drought has deveststed this once rich farm land.

    As an accountant Marc is auditing a relief agencies books, while undercover he is looking for a missing aid worker. The relief agency is just one arm of a private security company and they don't want Marc asking any questions. 

    As Marc quickly gets relief supplies from the tents to the needy he is given more responsibility by a local leader who gives him a blank check to get food and medical supplies into the refuge camps. 

    Marc once again finds kinship with African leaders through Jesus Christ. One elder has visions of a man who will save the land and believes Marc is the man of his visions. Pressure rises fast as the truth comes to light as too why the aid worker has disappeared, and no one wants Marc to solve the problem.

    Marc Royce risks everything once again to find the truth and save the African village. This is a great humanitarian story with action and redemption.
