Bound to Secrecy

William Mawolo arrives in a remote Liberian border town with a secret mission: to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the paramount chief Tetese. The locals, however - police force and citizens alike - are far from happy about his presence, and their hostility is increasing daily, threatening to boil over. At the same time, Mawolo is drawn to the departed chief's daughter, Makemeh, who for some reason doesn't seem to be too concerned about her missing father. Mawolo wonders why? Intrigued, he decides to stay longer than required - and even attempts to take charge of the town. Little by little, driven by circumstances of his own making, he starts to behave like the despotic man whose disappearance he came to investigate. His desire to uncover the town's dark secrets leads to contradictory revelations and puts him in danger. Who can he trust . . . and will he allow his heart rule his head? Bound To Secrecy is an exploration of power and the fear it generates; and of love in all its magical, addictive forms. A rich mix of African tradition, classic crime fiction and the supernatural, Bound to Secrecy is a captivating account of the complexities of Liberian society and the inevitable clash between modern life and ancient cultures. Acclaimed author Vamba Sherif brilliantly guides us through these complexities - but some mysteries remain...

Vamba Sherif was born in Kolahun, Liberia in 1973. In his early teens he moved to Kuwait, where he completed secondary school. The First Gulf War compelled him to leave Kuwait and settle first in Damascus, Syria, and then in The Netherlands, where he read Law. Vamba is also a journalist and film critic. His passions include music of every kind, film and the collection of rare books on Africa. His books include: The Land of The Fathers, The Kingdom of Sebah, The Witness and The Black Napoleon.
