Medical Thriller, Crime Mystery, Dark Romance
Dr. Jessica Hemings volunteers for a medical mission in Rwanda, she
becomes entrapped in the maelstrom of Rwandan politics and the enmity
between Hutus and Tutsis. Her Tutsi features plunge her into the
Rwandan Genocide. Dr. Cyprien Gatera, Jess’s superior and a Hutu
radical, commandeers her clinic, slaughters her patients and her
adopted sons, then forces her to treat his wounded. She escapes and
survives three weeks in hiding before finding refuge at Benaco
refugee camp in Tanzania.
Jess vows revenge. She searches for Gatera with the help of Michel
Fournier, a French lawyer-turned-war-correspondent, and Dr. Tom
Powell, her long-time lover. When an unknown informant passes
information to Jess about her nemesis, she returns to Rwanda, despite
warnings from the Belgian Secret Service that Gatera plans to
assassinate her. In their final showdown, Jess must decide if revenge
is best served cold—or not at all.
Schafer, born in West Texas at the height of the Cold War, finds it
ironic that grade school drills for tornadoes and nuclear war were
the same: hide beneath your desk and kiss your rear-end goodbye. Now
a retired family-practice physician whose only child has fledged the
nest, her pioneer ancestors and world travels fuel her
either as a consequence of a series of failed relationships or a
genetic distrust of happily-ever-after, her heroines are strong women
who battle tough environments and intersect with men who might—or
might not—love them.
