At the top of her game, documentary film-maker Dara Barr is on the lookout for a new challenge. She and her right-hand man, Xavier, head to Djibouti in Africa to tackle the subject of modern-day pirates. But once they start filming, they find a whole lot more than they bargained for. No-one is quite who they seem. Surrounded by colourful characters, including sheikhs, billionaires and an al-Qaeda convert who wants to blow something up, Dara and Xavier know it is time for a showdown. Written by Elmore Leonard, the author of Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Mr Majestyk, Djibouti is an exhilarating novel full of twists and turns.
