Publisher's Summary

Sairey Ellis's father is writing his memoirs. As an ex-security man whose life work has been in Africa, his revelations will be explosive, blowing the lid off British and Kenyan support for Idi Amin, and exposing the degree of unofficial British connivance in Rhodesian sanctions-busting.

He must be persuaded not to publish. This complex thriller from the acclaimed Reginald Hill takes a cool and pitiless look at the role of the security service, and its effect on the individuals, both innocent and knowing, which become caught up in it.

Gripping, assured and perceptive in its psychology, here is a chillingly convincing portrait of the repercussions of a life of espionage.

    "So, So"

    My first and only other Reginald Hill book was The Woodcutter which I loved. Wanting more I tried Dream of Darkness. It was OK, but nowhere near as good as the Woodcutter. I wish there was someway someone could let me know if any of his other books measure up.

    "Reginald Hill never disappoints."

    Complex and complete character development. Lots of twists & turns. Kept me engaged to the very end.

    "Pulls you in"

    As always, Reginald Hill writes beautifully; the characters are well limed, the plot... intriguing. Sean Barrett is a brilliant reader. My only regret is the novel wasn't longer.
