Full Product Description
Dive into the depths of Kenya, where corruption and ruthlessness is only surpassed by desolation. Davis Bunn’s latest political action thriller, ‘Rare Earth’, will take you through refugee camps, erupting volcanoes and sinister terrorist plots.
Marc Royce travels to the Rift Valley and gets a helicopters view of Kenya’s wounded land. A once-dormant volcano has covered the landscape in molten lava and spewed clouds of ashes into the atmosphere.
His important mission began as an audit for a relief organization, but soon becames a peace-keeper between warring tribes, anger refugees and humanitarian works. Kitra begs for Marks help to restore the land and people, but his other more secretive mission lays in the precious metal reserves that are indispensible to our high-tech industry.

Marc Royce stares out of the helicopter, a sense of foreboding rising with the volcanic cloud. Below, the Rift Valley slashes across Africa like a scar. Decades of conflicts, droughts, and natural disasters have left their mark.
Dispatched to audit a relief organization, Royce is thrust into the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps. But his true mission focuses on the area's reserves of once-obscure minerals now indispensable to high-tech industries. These strategic elements--called rare earths--have inflamed tensions on the world's stage and stoked tribal rivalries. As Royce prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes on a bold and risky venture for restoring justice to this troubled land.
