About the book: 
After a dramatic sabotage attempt at a nuclear research centre near Jo’burg, PI Jade de Jong is hired by the likeable Ryan Gillespie to track down a missing employee believed to be involved. The target of her search is Carlos Botha, a skilled operative who may represent a major threat to national security.
Jade traces Botha to a rundown motel in the West Rand, but she’s not the only one looking for him. Someone has put a hit out on Botha. Jade is forced into an uneasy alliance with him in order to learn more. As she unearths the research centre’s dark secrets, she discovers the threat is so extreme its ramifications could reach across the globe. Closer to home, if Botha learns who she really is, the consequences may be deadly.
