In the tradition of Beverley Harper comes a novel as big as Africa. After a bizarre mishap Jack Morgan takes up a UN posting in Kenya, hoping to find obscurity on the streets of Nairobi. There he is befriended by the American ′Bear′ Hoffman, a man equally at home in the city′s racy nightlife as in the Kenyan bush. Jack′s hopes for seclusion are soon dashed as he is seduced by the excitement of Africa and by a beautiful Maasai woman named Malaika. Malaika carries a dark secret, and when a warrior returns from her past, she and Jack are plunged into a world of ancient spiritualism and tribal curses. Caught at the centre of a gathering storm, they must fight for the survival of their love... Rich in historical details, Tears of the Maasai follows Jack on a flight from truth, and a Maasai family′s journey through time, from warrior supremacy to the colour and drama of modern-day Kenya. ′remarkable... adventuresome... suffused with tenderness′ Australian Book Review
