She had placed her day-old baby girl in a basket, dumped the basket beside a gutter in the cold harmattan, and fled the scene.

The present exploded into gun fights, treachery, Voodoo, love and vengeance as nemesis caught up with one and then with another. Who was Mary? How was she able to survive the diabolical plans of Sunbo and the Voodoo priests?
