England, ca 1975
Richard Abbott bliver sendt ud for at slå et svin af en afrikansk diktator, Njala, ihjel, men så bliver diktatoren pludseligt taget til nåde af den engelske regering og nu er det så Abbott, der bliver jagtet for han er blevet lidt sur på diktatoren efter at have siddet i et af hans fængsler i et par år.
Forfatteren har en smuk sans for ironi og underspillet humor.
Det ender med et gidseldrama, hvor Njala skyder Abbott, og Abbott's kollega Clifford skyder Njala i den tro at det er Abbott. ( )
