About the Book
Impressive in its scope, the book starts in France, moves through the United States, Iraq, Morocco, Nigeria and Cameroon to sweep into the Arab gulf and the source of horror financing.

The novel provides a stunning picture of her bravery, faith and determination as she faces relatively difficult odds. Giving texture to the story are brave United States, UK and Indian personal security groups, apparently soulless kid soldiers of Boko Haram, corrupt Nigerian military, Saudi terrorist investors, Kenyan money-launderers and the global politics of fear.
