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.
