Publisher Comments:

Bruno Salvador, known to friends and enemies alike as Salvo, is the twenty-nine year old orphaned love-child of a Catholic Irish missionary and a Congolese headman's daughter. Educated first at mission school and later at a discreet sanctuary for the secret sons of Rome, Salvo is inspired by his mentor Brother Michael to train as a professional interpreter in minority African languages. Soon a rising star in his profession, he is courted by City corporations, hospitals, law courts, the Immigration services and - inevitably - the mushrooming overworld of British Intelligence. Despatched to an island in the North Sea to attend a top-secret meeting between Western financiers and East Congolese warlords, Salvo is obliged to interpret matters never intended for his re-awoken African conscience.
