The Summoner by Layton Green

My review of Layton Green's thriller, The Summoner, is posted on my AfricaScreams blog.

The Summoner is set in present day Zimbabwe and follows the efforts of Dominic Grey from the diplomatic security unit of the U.S. Embassy to find out what happened to a retired diplomat who disappeared during a religious ceremony. He is aided by Nya Mashumba from the Zim government and a professor of religious phenomenology, Viktor Radic. It is a good read made all the more pleasurable by the cultural, academic, and geographical details the author works in.
