In a different time

This title tells the story of four young South Africans who embark on a mission that will ultimately take them to Death Row. They are a highly trained and experienced assassination squad reporting directly to Chris Hani. The narrative details their infiltration into the country, their operations, arrest and subsequent trial. These men are the foot soldiers who sacrificed everything. As their trial unfolds with their attorney fighting to save them from the gallows, so too does the story of their own lives and the choices they make. The story is set in a South Africa gripped by unrest and political tension, when the ANC was in exile and repression at its height. It tells of the extraordinary lengths people go to in order to fight for what they believe, and the acts people will commit to preserve the status quo. The characters are linked by bizarre coincidence and tragedy in a true account narrated by their attorney. Woven through the narrative is the construction of a bomb and its journey towards its target, and the circumstances which enable that meeting.

Brilliant

I loved this book. It is very well written. A real eye opener. It makes one want to change the world!

Dramatic, Dynamic and Devastating,

Wihout question this is one of the best books I have ever read; beautifully written, the suspense of a Grisham novel but incredibly true. In sheer brutal reality we can see what it was like to live under apartheid as a black person. I will urge all my white friends to pick this up and read. Perhaps the odd minority view of "some blacks would prefer it like it was"....or whatever may forever go away. A literary phenomenon.
