From the back cover:
War torn Mozambique, 1978.
A story of war fought under the merciless African sun. A war with Rayne Gallagher, a mercenary leader, fighting other men's wars; his lover Samantha, a beautiful American photographer, caught in the crossfire, and tongogora, committed to the fight for what he sees as freedom. This is an utterly believable story as the Soviets and the West struggle for supremacy in the battlefield that is Southern Africa.
