When a dead man's laptop computer is mysteriously delivered to Robert Poley, he abandons work on his latest "airport" thriller to investigate the murder of the computer's previous owner, Christo Mercer.
Poley discovers that Mercer was an illegal arms trader, fatally stabbed in a remote town in the Sahara. His life was haunted by nightmares of his past, and by his clandestine involvement with a ruthless rebel. Poley begins to recognize a pattern of corruption as severe as South Africa's in the aftermath of apartheid. A chilling story of murder that masterfully evokes South Africa's recent past.
