Chrissie Docherty returns to the southern Africa of her childhood and tracks down Evelyn Fielding, the woman at the centre of an explosive scandal involving a traditional colonial officer and a gifted black African artist.
Together, the two women uncover the secrets that shattered a remote expatriate outpost in the Zambian bush in the 1970s.
Switching deftly between today and the recent past, and set against a background of tense post-colonial race relations, political turmoil and witchcraft, 'Looking for Evelyn' powerfully evokes the very special colours, sounds and smells of Africa.
