Knowing too much can turn your world into a dangerous place.
Aluta’s life is going well. She works for mining magnate Frank Drake who, since Aluta’s parents were killed when she was a child, has become a surrogate father to her. The premier, Nomusa Zwide, is running to be the first female president of South Africa. The only fly in her ointment is her sister Pumla—a tenacious journalist with a history of mental illness. Pumla smells a rat when Frank Drake announces his plans to sell his mine to the local Somkhele community.
Aluta refuses to take Pumla seriously, until Pumla is murdered. When police rule the murder a suicide, Aluta suspects foul play. Desperate to find the murderer, Aluta picks up the investigation where Pumla left off. As she puts the pieces together, it turns out Frank’s mine has been overmined and he’s selling a useless piece of land to the Somkhele people.
Aluta’s digging also draws Frank’s attention. He takes out a hit on her, forcing her into hiding. She’ll have to reconnect with her ex-boyfriend, a hacker who’s stolen millions from Frank’s company, to help her if she’s to stay alive long enough to reveal the truth to the world.
Will this trusting young woman be able to become the hardened survivor who can make impossible choices in order to save not just herself, but her country?
