Somewhere in the jungles of Uganda, there hides a fugitive rebel leader: he is said to take his orders directly from the spirit world and, together with his ragged army of brutalized child soldiers, he has left a bloody trail of devastation across his country. Joseph Kony is now an internationally wanted criminal, and yet nobody really knows who he is or what he is fighting for. Intrigued by the myths, Matthew Green heads off into a war zone, meeting the victims, the peacemakers and the regional powerbrokers as he tracks down the man himself. The Wizard of the Nile is the first book to peel back the layers of mysticism and murky politics surrounding Kony, to shine a searching light onto this forgotten conflict, and to tell the gripping human story behind an inhumane war and a humanitarian crisis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Takes us closer to understanding the inhumane horror of one madman's war.' Bob Geldof 'A penetrating insight into the heart of one of the worst conflicts in the world' Jon Snow 'Green leads the reader into another world - of myth and magic, faith and superstition - as he tries to understand his quarry - a remarkable tale, vividly told.' Michael Holman
