They invite a British Member of Parliament who is accompanying his wife, Helen. She is in Khartoum on a fact-finding mission into female genitalia mutilation.The holiday becomes a nightmare.

So many questions.Glittering parties notwithstanding, men are slaughtered on construction sites.Why? What’s the motive? Who are the perpetrators?Abdul, a member of a mafia-type family, is devoted to money and will acquire it anyway he can- always by criminal acts.The family’s homes are palatial and extravagantly furnished and although his brother and sister enjoy the kudos and wealth, they loathe him for different reasons.
