About the Book
When Dr. Jessica Hemings volunteers for a medical mission in Rwanda, she becomes entrapped in the maelstrom of Rwandan politics and the enmity between Hutus and Tutsis. Her Tutsi features plunge her into the Rwandan Genocide. Dr. Cyprien Gatera, Jess’s superior and a Hutu radical, commandeers her clinic, slaughters her patients and her adopted sons, then forces her to treat his wounded. She escapes and survives three weeks in hiding before finding refuge at Benaco refugee camp in Tanzania.
There, Jess vows revenge. She searches for Gatera with the help of Michel Fournier, a French lawyer-turned-war-correspondent, and Dr. Tom Powell, her long-time lover. When an unknown informant passes information to Jess about her nemesis, she returns to Rwanda, despite warnings from the Belgian Secret Service that Gatera plans to assassinate her. In their final showdown, Jess must decide if revenge is best served cold or not at all.

📝 From the Author
Hunting the Devil arose from a trip to Africa with my biracial son. I made the trip considering it a bucket list sort of thing, but he held some vague idea of reconnecting with his African roots. Though he’s considered black here in the United States, there he was considered white. The disparity shook up his psyche. I took his unsettled feelings and expanded them into this book, creating a heroine that combined myself (a physician) and my son (biracial) then pushed her to her psychological and physical limits.
