There are no ghosts in Kenya. Ever since his arrival in the house on the mountain, Charlie Carter, a volunteer worker from England, has been convinced that the house is haunted; after questioning locals, he learns that seventy years earlier, Shula, a young native girl was entombed alive by the sexually jealous wife of a colonial settler. Has she ever left the house? Charlie is in Katamara, a village in 1970s' rural Kenya working on a hospital building project and hoping to find a woman to become his wife. He finds three. The beautiful Esmeralda: but he has to contend with his dubious deputy Freddie (Bristow) and the local policeman (Corporal Adonis Musyoka), the one-man crime-prevention guru of Katamara, both of whom are also besotted with this outrageous tantalizing teen. And there is Jennifer, the lrish hospital nurse, herself escaping a troubled past and Aisha, Freddie's secret lover. Can Charlie win Jennifer or rescue Aisha from Freddie and the squalid shanti-town in which she lives? But in a giant country beneath a giant sky can a ghost girl emerge from the hate and vengeance of a colonial horror story to restore humour, love and decency to the human spirit?
