              Charity Mupanga is the widowed owner of Harrods International Bar (and Nightspot)-a favourite meeting place for the movers and shakers of Kibera. While she can handle most challenges, from an erratic supply of Worcestershire sauce, the secret ingredient in her cooking, to the pol...itical tensions in East Africa's most notorious slum and a cholera outbreak that follows the freak floods in the state of Ubuntu, some threatening letters from London lawyers are beginning to overwhelm her. Well-meant but inept efforts to foil the lawyers by Edward Furniver, a former fund manager who runs Kibera's co-operative bank and who seeks Charity's hand in marriage, bring Harrods International Bar to the brink of disaster, and Charity close to despair. In the nick of time an accidental riot, triggered by the visit to the slum of World Bank President Hardwick Hardwicke, coupled with some quick thinking by Titus Ntoto, the 14-year-old leader of Kibera's toughest gang, the Mboya Boys United Football Club, help Charity-and Harrods-to triumph in the end.

              From the best-selling author of Last Orders at Harrods (also available in audio by Bolinda). Ferdinand Mlambo, the youngest boy ever to become senior kitchen toto at State House, is in deep trouble. Disloyalty to Kuwisha's Life President Nduka has not only cost him his prestigiou...s job: the sinister chief steward to the president, Lovemore Mboga, has humiliated Mlambo by stripping him of his name. Word goes out: henceforth, he will be known as Fatboy. But with the help of Titus Ntoto, leader of the notorious Mboya Boys gang of street children, Mlambo sets out on a quest to recover his name and dignity. In this sequel to the acclaimed Last Orders at Harrods, Michael Holman again combines the insights of someone brought up in Africa with the experience of nearly twenty years as the Financial Times' Africa editor. With a sharp observant pen, he describes a world of abandoned street children, corrupt politicians, well-meaning aid workers, celebrity outsiders, self-deceiving donors, and the resilient residents of Kireba - Kuwisha's worst slum - where the worldly but compassionate Mrs Charity Mupanga presides over the popular rendezvous, Harrods International Bar (and Nightspot). Praise for Last orders at Harrods. One of my novels of the year. - Alexander McCall Smith. This wickedly satirical novel is also a serious critique of Africa's troubled state. - The Guardian. In this satirical feast, Holman hits the mark every time he exposes the humbug and humanity of life in modern Africa...this is a book that must be read. - Aidan Hartley
