The Hangman's Replacement will lead you on a wild adventure of connect-the-dots. The first character we meet, Abel Muranda, our aspiring hangman, is a character I instantly liked. Determined to do good for his family (and have access to free health care!), he walks for three weeks from his small village to the big city of Harare in order to interview for the Hangman position. After his interview a very complicated web of politics and plant genetics emerges (too much to explain here).
Also, if you do read this check out all the stuff at the very end of the book.
