An African-American woman discovers that the man she divorced twenty years earlier is accused of committing crimes against humanity. This audiobook, with its full contingent of characters, moves from the American South to war-torn Liberia. It is one thing to be able to give linguistically accurate voice to the black diaspora, but this work also presents successful men, professional women, temperamental teenagers, elderly, Africans, and a vocal black Southern belle within a story of international intrigue. Throughout, Taylor never misses a beat. She more than rises to the occasion and keeps the listener engaged, even when the novel itself lapses into cliché.
