Acts of Faith

By Philip Caputo

Philip Caputo’s tragic and epically formidable new novel is determined in Sudan, the place conflict is an everlasting . Into this desolate theater come reduction employees, 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 drugs to smuggling fingers, 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 knowing in their characters deepens, it turns into obvious that Acts of Faith is a type of infrequent novels that mix excessive ethical seriousness with impossible to resist narrative wizardry.
