‘We spilled blood into this soil’
Julius Witaarde is the passionate young leader of a white separatist party in South Africa. He dreams of establishing a whites-only homeland in the north of the country. But dreams like his don’t come cheap. And conventional sources of finance are closed to him.
Together with two unlikely business partners, one at the highest level of government in South Africa, he moves into ivory smuggling.
In the forests of Botswana a small group of British paras are working with local game wardens to defeat poachers. Halfway round the world, the Royal Family’s youngest princess is getting married in Windsor. As church bells ring out, so do shots.
The domestic security agencies scramble to find the killer. Gabriel and Eli deploy to Botswana to investigate the disappearance of the paras, who never returned to base.
A trail of blood, and tears
Gabriel and Eli find themselves caught in a complex and bloody maze of lies, evasions, criminal deals and power-hungry politicians who believe destiny counts for more than the truth.
Recently reunited with long-lost sister, Wei Mei, Gabriel travels to Laos, the Gulf States and on to Laos and Hong Kong before he discovers the terrifying truth about the people he’s investigating.
