Inscribed on the title page: "To Hugh,with much appreciation, Joseph Amamoo London, Aug. 24, 1994". Loosely inserted photocopy of review of the book from . 'New African' magazine July/August 1994. "The Chocolate Lady" is a story of high drama, intrigue and politics, in Which treachery and treason are enormously rewarded. The heroine, a brave white woman risks her life in an effort to effect a counter military coup and the return of democratic, civilian rule in an African state. Colonel Kofi Johnson of Bassa organises a successful coup, only to be toppled by the 'Chocolate Lady'. Was the chocolate lady motivated by selfless devotion to her African husband. or was she an operative in the C.I.A? Was she an agent of the Israeli Secret Service, Mossad, as many suspected, or was she driven by altruism? Could the events narrated in the novel happen elsewhere apart from Bassa? Was the avidly womanising colonel really semi impotent? 'The Chocolate Lady', is a gripping, funny story that lays bare gross incidents of murder, juju, voodoo. double-dealing and anti-Semitism in the African state of Bassa. This novel may be banned in some countries for fear that the fiction of Kofi Johnson may become a reality. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 281 pages.
