In an isolated station in the Belgian Congo, Nicholas Frere, an Englishman, awaits trial for the murder of a native child, while his friend, James Frasier, attempts to determine the circumstances surrounding the charge.

The world around them is changing rapidly. The horrors of the Belgian Congo are becoming known and the flow of its once-fabulous wealth is drying up. Unrest flares unstoppably into violence. Frere’s coming trial will seek to determine considerably more than the killing of a child. But at the heart of this conflict is a secret so dark that one man must be willingly destroyed by his possession of it, and the other must sanction and participate in that destruction.
