The year is 1998. Nick, a marine biologist, is working on coral reef protection off the idyllic island of Zanzibar.
While on a trip to nearby Tanzania, he meets Miranda, who works in the US embassy there.
They could be forgiven for thinking they are living in paradise - until they find themselves embroiled in a desperate terrorist conspiracy.
Giles Foden's gripping third novel draws on recent history to create a contemporary thriller of dazzling virtuosity.
