Carcase for Hounds, Meja Mwangi


Meja Mwangi's second Mau Mau novel tells the story of a small isolated group of forest fighters; one of many after operation Anvil.


The group is under the command of a general called Haraka (Hurry) and the plot revolves round the fight between Haraka's men and British troops led by a Captain Kingsley. The fictional protagonists, Haraka and Kingsley, know each other as Haraka was once chief of a village under Kingsley's jurisdiction. The Captain is under pressure from his superiors, who demand immediate results in the attempts to crush the resistance met with from Haraka and his men.
