The extremists led by Sir Ray Norris are fighting to hang on to power. The Governor, Sir Elwyn Baker, a Labour Party appointee, is concentrating on how to keep order in the period before the African Nationalists Kawala and Katenga take over Kandaha, a British colony in central Africa which is between Rhodesia and Zambia and near Musi-o-Tunya, the Victoria Falls. Dominic Mulaisho has had a long career in the public service and his experience gives reality to the fictional struggle in this novel.
