About this title

Synopsis:

In the Uganda of Idi Amin, a band of mercenaries and expatriates plan to hijack a mile-long train carrying six million dollars worth of Ugandan coffee

Review:

This 1981 Westlake gem is back in print. A mile-long freight train steams through the heart of Idi Amin's mad, tortured, magical, and corrupt Uganda, loaded down with kahawa (Swahili for coffee). What Amin doesn't know, what his most beautiful spy has not been able to wring out of her latest victim, and what the world's coffee markets may be unable to swallow, is that the train and six million dollars worth of coffee are about to disappear into the hands of a conflicted, colorful, swashbuckling band of mercenaries and moneymakers.

"Kahawa is such a splendid huggermugger that if you don't like it, there's something wrong with you.... No reader that I will ever want to meet should dare complain." --The New York Times
