"Taut...haunting...vivid...Lee can convey the sprinting pace of a brush fire, the horror of an elephant slaughter, the hair-trigger tenseness of a military checkpoint."
--Louis Bayard, Washington Post Book World
"Diverting and unusual...Conrad by way of Joyce Cary, with a dash of Graham Greene." --Kirkus Reviews
"Creative, dark...absorbing...[The Lost Tribe] resonates with real emotions." --Middlesex News
"In The Lost Tribe, Mark Lee takes the modern unbeliever in all of us on a journey through Africa...looking for faith and for the mysterious, renegade decendants of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. The climate is harsh, the truths harsher, but Lee's compelling, lyrical prose urge us on to the inexorable conclusion." -- Richard Dooling, author of White Man's Grave
