99 DAYS is the story of Antoine Boshoso Davis, who is living the dream as a rookie homicide detective for the LAPD. But 12 years ago he was living a nightmare. As a young Hutu in Rwanda, Antoine was forced to become a child soldier with the rebel Hutu militia. Like so many others he was caught up in the slaughter of a country gone insane--murdering scores of men, womenand children with a machete.
Antoine eventually fled Rwanda to LA, was raised by an adoptive family into a quiet, sensitive man with a deep need for justice--so he joined the LAPD.
But when a serial killer starts stalking the African American residents of LA--murdering them with a machete--Antoine discovers that his past has come back to haunt him.

"When a string of brutal murders sets the streets of Los Angeles ablaze with racial and gang violence, LAPD detective Antoine Davis will face a nightmare he knows all too well. As he and his partner Valeria Torres try to solve the mystery of the 'MacheteMurderer,' Antoine's past threatens to cut his new life to ribbons. Because Antoine is no ordinary L.A. detective--he's a refugee from the brutal genocide that took place in Rwanda in the bloody spring of 1994 and he's seen firsthand what a machete can do in the hands of a madman."--P.  of cover.
Detective Antoine Davis must battle post-traumatic stress stemming from his role in Rwanda's 1994 genocide and an attraction to his partner Valeria during an investigation into brutal murders that has caused racial unrest in Los Angeles.
