A Muslim attack in Cape Town? Too far-fetched. It can't be true. So why is the Presidential Intelligence Agency so desperate to intercept a shipment? Why is the CIA bringing in its big guns? And why, if it's only a rumor, is it having such violent consequences-on the life of Milla Strachan, a former housewife who just wanted to live a little dangerously; Lemmer, a freelance bodyguard turned reluctant smuggler; and former cop Mat Joubert, who's working on his first case as a private eye? Before long, the trail of death stretches from the Chizarira to the Cape Waterfront. In his eagerly awaited seventh novel, Meyer moves deftly among a brilliantly rendered cast of characters-farmers, outlaws, gangsters, intelligence agents-and delves deeply into the people, problems, and landscapes of South Africa.

"Narrator Simon Vance expertly uses emphasis and pacing to capture the suspense of seemingly disparate story lines. In this South African thriller he creates memorable portrayals of the three protagonists: Milla Strachan, a housewife who escapes an abusive husband and lands a clandestine reporting job; Lemmer, a bodyguard involved in smuggling; and Mat Joubert, an ex-cop turned private investigator. These three lives are woven together across a backdrop of the beauty, corruption, racial tension, and violence that are contemporary South Africa. Vance adds to the authenticity of the experience by supplying South African accents with appropriate touches of British and Afrikaans dialects. K.C.R. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
