"The early sections contain some of the most evocative passages, and they lay the groundwork for the real focus of the story, which is the people of Hadejia and the lessons of true friendship... In narrator Matthew, Stephen creates a likable, self-effacing protagonist who ably imparts the warmth and generosity of the people he meets as well as the poverty, corruption, and constant heat of Northern Nigeria."

"Ricci handles the admittedly front-loaded momentum of his narrative with the skill of a practiced professional; he has the patience and sound ear to create his characters—particularly Lamport—as much from dialogue and quick, telegraphic thoughts as from overt scene-setting...Ricci delivers that rare bird, an action novel that should appeal equally to Christian and non-Christian readers.

They ground the more sensational side of the story in reality.
A fast paced technology tale with enough international intrigue and luxurious details to rival a James Bond adventure."
