A Friend of the Court

by Muroki Ndung'u

The Rift Valley Province of Kenya is an opposition stronghold, their secret eviction is ordered. The regime is clinging to power, ethnic hatred is rampant. In this first novel from a new Kenyan writer, an unlikely trio emerges: a foul character seeking to redeem himself, a young smart lawyer drawn in against her will, another lawyer not averse to bending the law to achieve his ends. The effort to call a halt is a powerful fictional evocation of attempts to halt an overwheening regime.
