A young African living in Albany is bent on avenging the death of his former lover back in Uganda at the hands of a gay-hating mob. When John Suruma tries to hire PI Don Strachey to burn down the church of an American missionary who promoted Uganda's harsh anti-gay law, Strachey recites a Chinese proverb - "If you set out on a journey of revenge, dig two graves" - and says he has a better plan. But does he? For soon Strachey himself is a victim of the kind of religion-inspired violence gays and lesbians are struggling against across the African continent.
