Another excellent Dona Leon. This one details the society on the outskirts of Venice where third country nationals are coming to the western countries trying to make a better life yet seem not to exist when not in public view. The title aludes to the African conflict developed from the continent's natural resources yet poor and violent societies. Once again Leon's character struggles between society's prejudges and the reality of the individual.
