Wow! This is a Historical Dark Thriller.
The author, Gavin Mills, is from South Africa. Mr. MIlls was there as Apartheid ended and new South Africa evolved. This is incorporated into this thriller in such a way that the reader has a clear understanding of what it was actually like to live through this.
This book is nonstop. It tells the story of the main character, Dup’s, life. A very interesting guy just trying to find his way. The characters are well defined and you will develop strong feelings about them.
This is a Dark Thriller. I can’t put labels on it all. Narcissistic psychopaths, Arms Dealers, corruption. Watch out who your friends are or aren’t. Sometimes you’re just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This is the second book in the Dup series and the prequel to the first book Dup Departs. It can be read as a stand alone book.
I envy you. There’s nothing like the first read of a great book. If you can handle it.
