Justin Kuku is a South Sudanese native who spent over two years living as a refugee in Cairo, Egypt, before immigrating in 2004 to the United States, where he pursued his education and worked for the criminal justice system. He has published his new book “The Ambitious Pyramid of Kush”: a gripping story inspired by his own experience as a refugee in Egypt and America.

Tokia Kaunda miraculously survives the brutal torture of the Sudanese National Intelligence guards in the Ghost Houses. He flees to Egypt to seek refuge, but racism, violence, rejection, and becoming easy prey for the doctors who steal the human organs from the Sudanese refugees are what the streets of Egypt have to offer him.

He thinks the struggle is over when he arrives in the United States of America, but things get worse. There are the language and cultural barriers. On top of that, the woman he loves and their unborn baby disappear and he is wrongfully convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison.

Despite all that, Tokia always strives to reach his goal of becoming a prosecutor who brings war criminals to justice. The author paints a realistic picture inspired by his personal experience.

Published by Page Publishing, Justin Kuku’s engrossing book is a superb choice for avid dramatic fiction readers.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Ambitious Pyramid of Kush” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
