A debut novel by the author of bestseller non-fiction title In a Different Time in 2008. Set in Johannesburg, the Wits Mining Company is about to do an empowerment deal and sell shares to a black consortium. Max Sinclair is instructed to oversee the process and soon becomes embroiled in what amounts to high-level political influence, industry collusion and espionage. This disturbingly familiar South African narrative was no doubt intended to be reflective of our society.
A pacy and compelling read.
