(NewsUSA) – We Never Knew of Darkness by Dennis Snyder
In April 1994, Hutu extremists—known as the Interahamwe —assassinated Rwanda’s president and embarked on a campaign of ruthless genocide against the minority Tutsi populations. Elijah Mutabazi, a sergeant in the Rwandan army, finds his younger sister, having been gang-raped and slaughtered by teenage killers recruited by the Interahamwe. Elijah spends his every waking hour caring for his father and protecting their village.
Upon returning to active military duty, Elijah learns that the international community had not come to aid those who survived the genocide, but ensured safe passage for the Interahamwe overlords. Elijah deserts his army post and enters a world of reckless abandon via heroin, psychedelics, and grain alcohol.
Elijah’s singular mission becomes vengeance against an active Interahamwe cell and its maniacal leader, who once served as a captain in the Rwandan Army and had been Elijah’s mentor. Purchase at https://bit.ly/3QCVA2Y.
