Sinopsis:

An adventure-mystery novel set in East Africa, and centered on the slopes of Mt. Kenya, Dreams of the N'dorobo incorporates African mysticism and magic, shamans, CIA and local assassins, mountain climbing, Western mercenaries and arms merchants, the Mau-Mau insurrection, the abysmal poverty of postcolonial Africa, and the beauty of the African lands and cultures.

From the Back Cover:

Dreams of the N'dorobo is a hard-hitting fast-action adventure novel, part mystery, part Indiana Jones, and all adrenaline.
On the slopes of Mt. Kenya lies a secret called "Dream Walking": an old magic of the reclusive N'dorobo tribe, a mystery that has been whispered around cook fires for generations. Dream Walking challenges the illusion of bedrock reality and offers a breakthrough in the esoteric art of political assassination. When Gabe Turpin stumbles onto a torture scene, killing the torturers and rescuing an old shaman who is their victim, he finds himself in the center of a dangerous whirlwind. A middle-aged but still rugged anthropologist and adventurer, Gabe is a man haunted by cruel memories of his youth - memories of death that won't die - as he explores the mystical and sometimes dark side of tribal cultures throughout the world. Under the tutelage of the grateful shaman, Gabe works to master Dream Walking and to solve the mysterious destruction that travels with it like a dismal fog - before it kills him.
With action ranging from the secret U.S. attempts to put down the Mau Mau insurrection in the 1950s to garden-variety political strife and murder in the 2000s; from death and resurrection on the mountain to the appalling, ever-present stench of corpses in the shantytowns of the coast, Dreams of the N'dorobo is a unique guided tour of the seamy side of Africa, juxtaposed against the nobility of African tradition, and is, above all, a raring good adventure.
