Moses, descending deeper into the mystery of who murdered the IDP camp doctor, begins to stir the nest of hornets that is the criminal underworld of refugee camp life. He suspects everyone and everyone suspects him. It's nothing short of hard-boiled detective fiction, East African style.

    Alberto Ponticelli's pencils are still strong and effective at communicating the utter suffering and despair of the characters. I do wish Ponticelli were better at differentiating his figures in terms of size and height. Starved those these Acholi tribesmen may be, it shouldn't be quite so hard to distinguish the children from the adults. On the plus side, Dave Johnson's colors are a great boon to the issue. With the interplay between night and day so vital to the script, it's good to have such a strong, well-defined color scheme throughout. Read Full Review
