Books Info:

Brazzaville Beach free pdf 'I live on Brazzaville Beach...I am here because two sets of strange and extraordinary events happened to me...One in England, first, and then one in Africa.' On Brazzaville Beach, on the edge of Africa, Hope Clearwater examines the complex circumstances that brought her there. Sifting the details for evidence of her own innocence or guilt, she tells her engrossing story with a blunt and beguiling honesty that not only intrigues and disturbs but is also completely enthralling.
