"Kenya, 1961. As a small plane carrying Natalie Nelson lands at a remote airstrip in the Serengeti, Natalie knows she's run just about as far as she can from home. Trained as an archaeologist, she has accepted an invitation to be part of a famous excavating team, her first opportunity to escape England and the painful memories of her past. But before she can get her bearings, the dig is surrounded by controversy involving the local Maasai people--and murder. Compounding the tension, Eleanor Deacon, a friend of the Maasai who is leading the excavating mission, watches a rift grow between her two handsome sons. Natalie's growing attraction to one of them soon becomes a passionate affair that turns dangerous when she must give evidence in a trial that could spark even more violence and turmoil"--Cover, p. 2.

Part drama and intrigue. Part historical dig. A little too much drama for me but I did like exploring Kenya during that time period and the details of the archeological dig.

This is a good historical fiction. Learned a lot about archeological digs and the fraternity of people highly involved in this profession. The drama was a bit overwrought but I am used to reading only non-fiction.
