Seven years ago in Cape Town three young white South African schoolboys were abducted in broad daylight on three consecutive days. They were never heard of again. Now, a new case for the unpredictable Colonel Vaughn de Vries casts a light on the original enquiry; for him, a personal failure which has haunted him for those seven years and has cost him his marriage and peace of mind. A former British government agent, friend to the Colonel, provides intelligence on this new case, but is any of it admissible? Struggling in a mire of departmental and racial rivalry, he seeks the whole truth and unravels a complex history of abuse, deception and murder.
