"The Heart of Darkness" meets "The Poisonwood Bible" with shades of "Venus on the Halfshell" and "Call of Cthulhu," and a bit of "Raiders" added for fun, but with a significant female character. Set in the pre-War Congo, this novel provides a fictional explanation for the modern Skeptical movement.
