Additional Info

This provocative and funny look at exploitation and corruption, journalistic ethics, freedom of the press, and marital infidelity is set in a fictional, copper-rich African nation. Dick Wagner of The Sunday Globe and a competing freelance journalist arrive at the jungle home of a white mine owner.

"Dazzling [...] It throbs with life and is a pleasure." - New York Post
