Murder in the Peace Corps

A Lynne Lewis West Africa Mystery

by Rosemary Yaco

Author of:

Appointment in Togo: Murder in the Fulbright Program

Dedicated to the heroes and villains who made my thirteen years in West Africa fascinating and the Togolese and Beninese people who with patience and grace endure the presence in their country of Americans sent by their government.

THE STORY IS FICTITIOUS. THE EVENTS DID NOT HAPPEN, THE PEOPLE DID NOT EXIST. BUT THE AMBIENCE, THE ATMOSPHERE, THE DETAILS OF AFRICAN LIFE AS THEY STRIKE THE AMERICAN INTERLOPER ARE BASED ON THE AUTHOR'S THIRTEEN YEARS IN TOGO AND BENIN FROM 1983-1996
