When Killers Cry is a thriller set in 1981 South Africa during the turbulent and violent apartheid years. While it is a work of fiction, it is based on facts and in events that actually happened. A fast-paced, action packed story that shows the true effect of the Nationalist Government's racist policies, which affected people of all colours, creeds and races. The author grew up in South Africa during this time and it is based on her memories and experiences, plus subsequent research into that period of history. It's 1981 and South Africa is in the grip of apartheid. The ANC's armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, is stepping up violent retaliation; detentions, strikes and riots are increasing daily. Reporter Hannah Smith, stumbles into a quagmire of political conspiracy when she begins investigating the deaths of black activists and dissidents. What she learns puts her life and that of her friends and family in danger. No one can be trusted, not even Tom Maartens, the police detective who has been helping her. With the support of her friend Themba Ntini, a black journalist working covertly, and illegally, alongside her, and best friend Dani, Hannah uncovers a plot that, if it succeeds, will plunge the country into a chasm from which there will be no return.
