From the Publisher
Annotation In THE WONGA COUP, a group of European businessmen decide to raise funds so that an army of mercenaries can take over a relatively small, but oil-rich, country in West Africa. This true story of a bold, and ultimately failed, 2004 plot to seize Equatorial Guinea includes a colorful cast of corrupt players on both sides, including the country's dictator, Macias Nguema, and the leader of the coup, Simon Mann, a British adventurer and aristocrat. Author Adam Roberts also follows the trail higher up, implicating government officials and corporations in this tale of modern-day piracy gone wrong.
