When Man Plays God
The Devil is in the Details
In 1996 geneticist Rachel Whitelock escaped the war in Zaire with a secret that could change the lives of millions. Now she is going back to the tiny west African country of Bengara to oversee covert trials of the genetically modified crop that came from that discovery.
But someone is waiting for her…
Ex-warlord Ato Jelani has waited eighteen years for her to return what she stole from Africa, but he doesn’t just want it to feed the people. With the power this crop has, he can restart the war.
Hunted across the jungles of Bengara, Whitelock must pull off a daring plan that could make or break her career… and change the course of a nation.
