Reconciliation for the Dead

1 Mins read

Claymore Straker, a young soldier in the Angolan Civil War, is on the run as a deserter when he intervenes to save a woman from a gang rape. With this impulsive, compelling act, he uncovers a larger game of Apartheid-era exploitation, greed and a biological weapons programme. Before he can choose between his duty and doing the right thing, he must survive the gauntlet of war-torn Southern Africa as he struggles to save his friends and get out the truth. The thrilling and harrowing account by acclaimed author Paul E Hardisty is told alternately in the adrenalin-fueled moment and through transcripts of his testimony before South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Highly recommended if you’re into fear-fueled combat prose, angst-ridden protagonists and philosophy on the nature of war. Another winner from superstar publisher Orenda. Read the full review here.
