“When it comes to the art and science of storytelling, Nicholas Oyoo has mastered all the nooks and crannies. The portrayal of human existence is so realistic; it is almost palpable – blood, sweat, tears, contradictions, celebrations, lamentations, trust, betrayal, love, hatred, honesty, corruption – all couched in quasi-poetic prose. This book is a must-read.” — Charles Phebih Agyekum, Author & Editor
“The story craftily brings together politics and real life issues that affect everyday people. It clearly outlines Kenya’s history and brings a close feel to it with what was happening on the ground. The characters are well woven and the mystery of who fits where soon unfolds. The suspense keeps the readers flipping pages to find out the turn of events. Kraft’s story has complete and carefully chosen characters. Brilliant!” — Jackline Maina – Miss Universities 2010-2011
