The Rwandan Hostage is the second volume of Christopher Lowery’s African Diamonds Trilogy and continues the tale of corruption, murder and greed that began with the bestselling The Angolan Clan. Heroine Jenny Bishop is back with a vengeance! The abduction of her nephew at the world cup final in South Africa brings to light a long-hidden event in her sister’s history, which heralds a terrifying threat to the lives of her closest family. In a desperate attempt to find her nephew and bring him to safety, Jenny joins forces with ex-Chief Inspector, now private investigator, Pedro Espinoza. Together they uncover an international conspiracy dating back to the horrific events of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Jenny is in a race against time to find the abductors, before the damning revelations threaten to tear her family apart. Set against a European-African backdrop, the fast-paced plot twists and turns in a gripping series of events and action. The Rwandan Hostage is a compelling international mystery that will enthral all thriller fans, in the best traditions of Gerald Seymour, Frederick Forsyth and Richard North Patterson.
