Pulitzer Prize -- winner Philip Caputo spins a gut-leveling story about a broken man's struggle for salvation and inner freedom in the midst of a broken nation's fight for stability and peace.When Vietnam veteran and foreign correspondent Charlie Gage realizes he's been coerced into becoming a mercenary in a guerrilla war, he doesn't really care. A recent tragedy and his subsequent nervous breakdown have robbed him of all volition. But his lack of will becomes increasingly dangerous under the spell of Jeremy Nordstrand, the monstrous megalomaniac leading their suicidal mission into war-torn Ethiopia. Masterfully plotted and vividly detailed, Horn of Africa is a timeless tale of good and evil, a spellbinding epic into the heart of a modern-day desert darkness. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
