Brink at his robust and imaginative best' Adam Low, Daily Telegraph. `A political thriller, set in South Africa, laced with all the angst and pain and lacerating emotion that comes from attempting to intellectualise, and hence come to terms with, living in that volatile, unnerving, but ultimately fascinating land' Peter Brown, Time Out.
