Quel mal étrange s?est emparé de l?Ouganda ?
Juwna, un prédicateur au charme christique, parcourt le pays et agite les foules. Mais la bouillante Afrique est habituée au pire. Les puissants demeurent indifférents. Seul Frédéric, un agent de renseignement français, s?intéresse à l?affaire. Juwna fascine ce jeune homme étrange et désabusé. Au point de trahir ses supérieurs et sa mission. Au point de créer le danger.

L?intrigue court des bords du lac Victoria aux tours de la Défense, mais aussi sur d?autres théâtres. Là où la pensée collective domine, là où s?expriment les instincts les plus sombres de l?âme humaine. Là où l?on ne peut tricher avec les voix intérieures.
The time is ripe for prophets. A mysterious agitator is trying to provoke a huge taxi cab driver?s strike in Uganda and is portrayed as a joke in the media around the world. But soon, the world doesn?t think the whole affair is very funny any more?

Something strange has come over the country of Uganda as Juwna, a strongly charismatic pseudo prophet travels across the country stirring up dissent. But turbulent Africa has seen worse and her powerful leaders remain indifferent to what seems to them a minor nuisance. Only one man, a troubled young French intelligence agent, finds the affair of interest and is soon himself fascinated by Juwna. To the point of becoming a traitor to his commanders and his mission, and worse still, of actually creating a highly explosive situation.

Soon Juwna is being discussed in high circles, from Lake Victoria to Paris but also in places where collective thought dominates and the basest instincts of mankind find a medium for their expression.


"Marc Durin-Valois gives us a wonderful novel of adventure and manipulation. With Black Prophet he ranks as one of the best French writters of his generation."
