    The book opens as if it were a work of non fiction with an account of the mysterious death of Zimbabwean ex military chief Rex Nhongo in 2011 That political mystery is a haunting presence in the first two thirds of the novel, as the gun that we may infer shot the fatal bullets, and the shadowy figures who wielded it, appear at unexpected moments, in the back of a taxi, or sitting ominously in a bar But the book reads ...

    I received The Death of Rex Nhongo by C.B George as a Goodreads Giveaways winner I loved this book My only complaint is it wasn t longer I could even see this being a 3 or 4 book series, going in depth with all the characters and situations This is a study of human psychology, every character is flawed, most aren t even loveable, and the ones that are good are so dumb or passive, it makes you want to reach through the book and shake them Regardless, this is a fascinating read I liked th I received The Deat
