Damon Pierce's life has hit a crossroads: His wife is divorcing him, and his work as a successful litigator in a California megafirm has become soulless. So he decides to respond to a plea for help from a woman he once loved. Marissa's husband, Bobby, opposes the ruin of his African homeland, Luandia, caused by the partnership between a giant American oil company and the brutal regime of General Savior Karama. When Bobby defies Karama's ban against nighttime protests, everyone in his village is massacred--and Bobby is arrested for the murder of three oil workers. Still drawn to Marissa, Pierce agrees to defend Bobby, hoping to save them both from almost certain death, but Luandia's lethal politics may cost Pierce his life instead.
