The Overwhelming by JT Rogers
JT Rogers’ gripping thriller focuses on an American family in Rwanda, immediately prior to the 1994 genocide. As Jack searches for his mysteriously disappeared friend, his wife becomes close to a powerful politician and his teenage son finds escape – and danger – in Kigali’s nightclubs.
