Ahead of the Shadows (Paperback)


8 in stock


When a photographer witnesses war crimes, will she have to abandon her calling to save herself?

 As Lena and Kojo work in conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Darfur, Sudan and other places across East and Central Africa, there is immense psychological pressure, and it’s not certain if their relationship will survive.

Eighteen years later, Bene walks the gritty back streets of Paris for one night in a music festival. He is on his way to meet his father in Nairobi, Kenya, a man he’s never met.

Ahead of the Shadows is about the intense relationships that come from work in war zones, the transmission of trauma from one generation to the next, and how one unconventional boy might be able to break the cycle.

Praise for A.B. Kyazze

A.B. Kyazze brings to the story a photographer’s eye, capturing the tragedy and the beauty of the people caught up in Angola’s civil war. It reads as a thriller – but one with a heart” Joss Stirling, author of The Silence

“Totally gripped… I come away moved, desperately sad, and somehow also hopeful – because, with this story, A.B. Kyazze holds up both the dark and the light of humanity – how, even in desperate, terrible circumstances, there are those touches of love, of kindness” Julia Crouch, author of Her Husband’s Lover

“The finale is as thrilling as it was unexpected” Oscar Scafidi, author of Kayak the Kwanza
