If you're looking for spine-chilling mystery, syrupy romance, blatant sex or gratuitous violence, read no further.

If you're interested in an enthralling chronicle of two young men, one white, one black, in apartheid South Africa, then this is a book for you. Their destinies become inexorably intertwined in their pursuit of what is right.

Zak Ginsberg is shaped by his parents' sad histories. Awareness of the Second World War, his Jewishness and the status of the black population slowly infiltrate his consciousness.

Mpande Gumede has spent an idyllic childhood in rustic Zululand. At high school, he realises for the first time, that he is a second-class citizen.

Zak studies the art of saving lives. Mpande pursues the craft of destroying lives. Both are drawn into the anti-apartheid struggle. The one acts because his ancestors were victims, the other because he himself is a victim.

Can they survive the challenges ahead?
