Three Thousand Nights of Terror
by Edward B. Rugumayo
This is a historical novel set in Uganda during the dictatorial rule of General Idi Amin, which lasted three thousand nights. It is about a group of Ugandans of diverse backgrounds who organise to subvert the regimes terror machine. You will experience risky missions and narrow escapes many of the characters undertake, the clammy fingers of the dreaded regimes Public Protection Unit and State Research Bureau, and the smell of war and death.
Amidst all this terror, there are lighter moments when humanity reasserts itself to heal broken hearts, save lives, and even marry in the middle of gunfire.About the Author
