A young, inexperienced woman travels up the Rift Valley from Kenya to Ethiopia. A revolution is brewing, a famine has already struck.

  • As with all Liza Cody's writing, this book is magic. The prose and the story just engulf you, and you experience the sensations, sights, concerns and moral dilemmas of the protagonist. There are LOTS of plot twists in this one. I'm fairly certain that most tourist agencies in African nations would not recommend this book, but I found it fascinating.

  • This is an incredible treat. Not a mystery like her later work but an advventure story and a study of what happens when a person is gradually removed from everything familiar. To what lengths will a person go to stay alive? This is a great read.

  • This book is amazing! Part mystery, part travelogue, part character sketch, and all fascinating and so well written.

  • Another of Cody's relatively early books, set in Africa with a young Englishwoman travelling on her own in Ethiopia.

  • The book I received was a different edition than what was posted -- it was very old and very well worn.

  • This is an outstanding piece of work. It is, however, not really classifiable as a mystery, or even a thriller. It is a high-energy adventure and survival story.
    The female protagonist is tough, independent, smart, and pretty savvy. But when she decides to go into a section of Africa that no one can tell her much about, she realizes that she has made a mistake. Of what use is money when transportation, food, and lodging is absolutely not available? And who in such a modern world would imagine that one could end up so thoroughly out of reach of civilisation?
    She gamely begins the battle to return home, but it seems that someone in her group has become the target for undercover political violence. Could it be her?
    Gritty (literally, since washing is a rare luxury in the rift) and suspenseful reading. The details are utterly evocative and convincing; the characters are fully realized. Cody is an outstanding writer, and this is one of her very best.

  • What is most interesting about this book is her observation of Ethiopia. If you ever see a copy of this book, buy it.
    Liza Cody is one of my favorite authors. Her Anna Lee series is outstanding. But this book, with its naive seamstress totally out of her element, has stuck in my mind long after all the other stories faded. I have always wondered how she came to write it.
    And, Liza, if you read this, please write more books.
