Who is smuggling the latest British high technology out of the country? Patrick Hyde, Sir Kenneth Aubrey's best agent, is sure he knows, but no one will believe him...
Deep in the Namibian bush, a reclusive game warden stumbles upon a crashed Dakota plane. Inside he finds electronic hardware and a corpse bearing a KGB identity card...
Weary and ill, Sir Kenneth is reluctantly drawn into Hyde's investigation. He soon realizes that something far more sinister than high technology is on its way to a South Africa in turmoil. From Moscow to London, from Venice to Johannesburg, they pursue a network of double agents, amoral businessmen and mercenaries to a shattering climax in the wastelands of Namibia – the killing ground.
“When it comes to keeping the story moving and stoking up the excitement, Mr Thomas knows his business”
