THE SEARCH FOR MUKUROB is an uplifting novel that takes the reader on a thought-provoking journey deep into the roots of humankind.
Upon the brutal murder of his childhood friend in the hands of extremists, David Callaghan, a young Catholic priest in a small Irish town, begins to question his faith in humanity. When he stumbles across an article on the identification of the most ancient humans on Earth - the San people of the Kalahari - David makes it his mission to find out what went wrong in the human odyssey. He then takes a sabbatical from the priesthood to join an anthropological mission among the San in Africa. The inevitable clash of beliefs ultimately compels the priest and the anthropologists to embark on a philosophical battle, forcing David to profoundly question what it means to stay true to himself. While stuck in the desert with an eclectic bunch of scientists, murder and romance also intertwine in this unlikely scrutiny of the human saga.
Will Father Callaghan unearth the answer to what went wrong with humankind? Will his faith in humanity be restored? Will an unlikely romance restrain him from returning to the priesthood?
