Before his death, the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi arranged for a vast hoard of gold bullion and many millions in cash to be hidden in the Karoo desert in South Africa...
A trio of Special Forces cops--A veteran Sergeant, a former army commando, and his two cohorts: a Zulu giant and an expat Russian Spetsnaz operator--wage a ruthless war against a Satanic criminal, a Zimbabwean army colonel, who sets out to steal this fortune for himself.
The book provides unique insights into insider police procedure and the savage reality of the high energy lifestyle of the grindingly poor and the obscenely wealthy inhabitants of the multiracial metropolis of Johannesburg.
The trio's principal adversary is a Zimbabwean colonel who has established a criminal empire based in the black township of Alexandra, where he is fearfully known as uSathane--the Zulu expression for The Devil. uSathane uses black magic and cannibalism--he drinks the blood of raped women--to keep him alive although he is riddled with Aids.
