Philip Caputo’s tragic and epically formidable new novel is determined in Sudan, the place struggle is an everlasting . Into this desolate theater come relief staff, missionaries, and mercenaries of sense of right and wrong whose braveness and idealism occasionally coexist with treacherous ethical blindness. There’s the entrepreneurial American pilot who is going from flying foodstuff and medication to smuggling hands, the Kenyan reduction employee who can’t support seeing the tawdry underside of his firm, and the evangelical Christian who involves Sudan to redeem slaves and falls in love with a charismatic insurgent commander.

As their fates intersect and our figuring out in their characters deepens, it turns into obvious that Acts of Faith is a kind of infrequent novels that mix excessive ethical seriousness with impossible to resist narrative wizardry.   

From the exchange Paperback edition.
