display_description This stirring sequel to The White Rhino Hotel is a historical novel of bold romance and grand adventure that sweeps from cosmopolitan Cairo to the wild highlands of East Africa. A nation sits at the brink of war; a city is fraught with conspiracy. It's 1935 in East Africa, and at the Cataract Caf ̌in Cairo, they gather: professional hunter Anton Rider; his estranged wife and her Italian lover; the pampered American twins, Bernadette and Harriet Mills; an English lord down on his luck; a German freebooter who has stolen a fortune in silver from the Italian army. Under the knowing eye of the Goan dwarf and caf ̌proprietor Olivio Alevado, they lay plots and toast alliances. They plan safaris. They gamble with destiny.
