A Dancer in the Dust

(2014)
A novel by

 
Twenty years ago, Ray Campbell, now a cautious risk- management consultant, was a well-intentioned aid worker dedicated to improving conditions in Lubanda, a newly independent African country. He is forced to reconsider that year of living dangerously when a friend from his time in Lubanda is found murdered in a New York alley. Signs suggest that this most recent tragedy is rooted in the far more distant one of Martine Aubert, the only woman Ray ever truly loved and whose fate he d sealed in a moment of grievous error.Martine Aubert was a white, native Lubandan farmer whose dream for her homeland starkly conflicted with those charged with its so-called development. But it was Ray s failure to understand Martine s commitment to her country that had placed a noose around her neck, one tightened by a circle of vicious men, cruel taunts, and whistling machetes. Ray s return to the passion he d once felt for Martine makes A Dancer in the Dust the enthralling and moving story of two loves: Ray s love for Martine Aubert, and Martine s for a homeland that did not love her back."
