Critically hailed, Uganda-born authorMoses Isegawa's Snakepit is a 'high-octane melodrama bearing a potent . message [that] delivers the goods' (Kirkus Reviews). Bat Katanga, a Cambridge University post-graduate, returns to his dictator-oppressed African homeland in the 1970s. Rising rapidly through the government's bureaucratic ranks, Bat must navigate-and survive-a world rife with bribery, seduction, conspiracy and execution.
