South Africa – a land long torn asunder by age-old struggles for freedom. Now the apartheid era is brought vividly to life in John Gordon Davis’s powerful new best-seller – a panoramic novel filled with adventure, passion, a cast of unforgettable characters, and penetrating political insight.
Accused of treason following an illicit affair with activist Patti Gandhi, journalist Luke Mahoney is forced to flee into exile. Only when South Africa finally moves into a new era is it safe for him to return – after long years of reporting on the racial oppression and bloodshed from beyond its borders. It is a time of momentous change, uncertain optimism, fear and forgiveness. With unforeseeable speed, the ANC is unbanned, Nelson Mandela is released – and a ghost from Luke's past returns. Suddenly his new life with Afrikaner academic Katrina de la Rey is thrown into turmoil, as the violence-ravaged country braces itself for the first historic elections.
