After Idi Amin's reign was overthrown, the new government opted for amnesty for his henchmen rather than prolonged conflict. Ugandans tried to bury their history, but reminders of the truth were never far from view until a stray clue to the 1972 disappearance of Eliphaz Laki led his son to a shallow grave resulted in a trial that gave voice to a nation's past. In his book, Andrew Rice follows the trial, crossing Uganda to investigate Amin's legacy and the limits of reconciliation.
