“Alex Keto is a wordsmith extraordinaire who creates a moving spectacle of human drama set against the backdrop of rebellion in colonial Kenya. His masterful control of language is just as evocative as it is visceral in the breadth and scope in the imagery of the setting and how it impacts the main characters—which immediately reminds one of Hemingway’s Kilimanjaro or Forster’s India. Keto’s story grabs you from the opening hunt sequence and does not let you go until the very last sentence; only then can you finally catch your breath at having lived through this amazing literary journey. The Rainbird War is a brilliant and powerful literary tour de force.” ~ Jeffrey Miller, War Remains and Ice Cream Headache “The Rainbird War is one of those books that has it all - danger, romance, war, politics and betrayal. But at its core, it’s the story of a loss of innocence on an epic scale. The Rainbird War captures a foreign land in upheaval vividly and pulls the reader through the harrowing and lush world it portrays. “ ~ Colin Dodds, The Last Bad Job “In the midst of a wildly haunting adventure, Alex Keto's lyrical, sincere prose weaves powerful conflict, painterly observation, and tender understanding into a compelling storyline – truly a pleasure to read.” - Jim Davis, North Chicago Review

Alex Keto is a Bethesda, MD based author whose research about the Mau Mau Rebellion began in the Library of Congress where he read out-of-print histories, memoirs and diaries from that era, and then culminated in two trips to Kenya (2007 and 2009) to see where the rebellion by the Kikuyu people against Kenya’s colonial government took place. During that time he made good use of his experience as an API reporter and interviewed settlers and former Mau Mau fighters about their experiences. The result is an authentic historic novel that “grabs you from the opening hunt sequence and doesn’t let you go until the very last sentence,” declares Jeffrey Miller, whose novel War Remains recently won two Military Writers Society of America Book Awards, including Gold for Fiction. According to The North Chicago Review, “Keto's lyrical, sincere prose weaves powerful conflict, painterly observation and tender understanding into a compelling storyline.” And novelist Colin Dodds (Another Broken Wizard and The Last Bad Job) said simply, “The Rainbird War is one of those books that has it all.”
