Historical Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Scotsman Nicholas Garrigan volunteers for posting to a medical clinic in Uganda as a way to escape his domineering father while providing medical care to the truly needy. Through a strange set of circumstances Dr. Garrigan becomes personal physician to the new Ugandan president, Idi Amin. Narrator Mirron Willis presents a dazzling cast of characters, including African tribesmen, diplomats, Scots, and Brits, all with vocal authority, clarity, and believability. The essence of this story is the conflict within Garrigan as he is forced to acknowledge the heinous crimes committed by Amin. Willis’s work is instrumental in bringing readers face-to-face with Garrigan’s moral dilemma as he descends from well-meaning physician to political accomplice.
