A LOW SCREAM coming from somewhere deep inside woke her. Kate sat up and fumbled under the mosquito net to turn on the lamp, knocking over a glass of water in her haste. She stared at the shards of broken glass and the water pooling under the bedside table, and breathed deeply, her heart shuddering uncomfortably in her chest. The memories of that terrible day still haunted her. She had watched people jump to their deaths from hundreds of floors up and wondered how she would have coped with making such a terrifying decision. For months afterwards, the whine of a jet engine had made her look up in fear. An aircraft glimpsed between the great skyscrapers of New York City, an aircraft that seemed as though it could hit the side of a building, brought her out in a cold sweat. The images were impossible to bury. She had not been unhappy to leave Manhattan and return to East Africa.
