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.

I could tell you about the characters but I'd like you to READ THE BOOK and for out yourself.
As one of the many white South Africans who have left the country, this book was a total eye-opener. I loved the way the author has managed to sum up the whole weird and dangerous world that the police survive in. And yes, I believe that uSathane used black magic to survive, but fortunately, sometimes white magic (in the true use of the word) manages to outweigh this evil.Read more ›
The characters are all extremely well written, in particular Sergeant Michael Night. He's incredibly complex as on the one hand, he is cold and can shut off his feelings to even the death of people close to him, but on the other hand he rescues dogs when he can an he loves his girlfriend Lisa and his two fellow "Black Bastards" a Zulu and a Russian. (The full title of the book did throw me a little, but it is explained that the reason the three men are called "Black Bastards" is due to the combat gear that they wear). He is a really great character and was easy to get behind and route for in the story. I also adore Wamba his pet rescued mountain of a dog, he's written so well that you can actually picture his face and his abounding energy.
The story itself is fast paced and well written, my only slight comment would be that there were moments that felt very much like information dumps, particularly at the beginning of the book, but this is a personal thing and it may not seem that way to everyone.
The world building is quite intense and sets an extremely vivid picture of the streets in South Africa and what the police in this book at least have to face, I could quite easily envisage the gated communities and the people just trying to get on with their own life with as little disruption as possible from the warring factions.Read more ›
