Morgan Leafy is a British diplomat who, for the past three years, has been assigned to the British High Commission of Ninjana, an African nation slowly divesting itself of colonial rule. Leafy is an arrogant and frequently confused alcoholic romantically involved with an African woman named Hazel. Arthur Fanshawe, a new High Commission appointee who wants nothing more than to be moved out of Africa, brings some interesting news to Leafy: massive reserves of oil have been discovered in Ninjana, and so the British will want to stay on the good side of Sam Adekunle, the next president of Ninjana.
However, something of a diplomatic crisis has come up; a native woman was struck by lightning in the courtyard of the High Commission’s compound, and the locals insist that she cannot be moved until certain time-honored rituals have been performed. At a loss for advice, Leafy turns to Dr. Alex Murray, a Scottish doctor and one of the few people equally at ease with both the British colonials and the natives. But Leafy’s romantic problems are about to get even more complicated…
