Those responsible make only one demand: We want him, but without saying who ‘he’ is. In pursuit of this slimmest of clues is Tolamo Moagi who, in this second Dire Tladi novel, is freed from the demons of alcoholism and promiscuity that haunted him when readers first encountered him in Blood in the Sand of Justice. Now he joins forces with Nyeleti Pistorius, a captain in the Directorate for Priority Crime (The Hawks), and a French intelligence officer, Julie Bourbon. Also helping is Tolamo’s old friend, technology whizz-kid Daniel Schob.
The twists and turns of this captivating novel takes readers all over the world – from Khartoum to Berlin, from Vienna and The Hague to Laguna Beach – as Tolamo’s intrepid team exposes a sinister conspiracy to control the world.
