Funny book. A peace corps worker goes missing in Africa and his Father and best friend have extremely different and naive ideas on how to locate him. As long as you have money and an open mind, what could possibly go wrong? Hilarious.

Behind the fairly simple story of a Peace Corps volunteer missing in West Africa and a friend's search to find him, one feels that some larger significance is brooding and expects it to appear at any moment. Unfortunately, it never does. The pace is fast, the style lush, and the atmosphere slightly ominous; there is plenty of action, adventure, and suspense; but somehow Dooling has not quite managed to make it all come alive. The result has to be one of the longest shaggy-dog stories on record.
