After a lifetime of political activism in South Africa, Yazz thinks she’s finally content with her quiet London life. She doesn’t expect the reappearance of Lily, the best friend and comrade who betrayed her. Nor does she expect Lily’s demand: to help her find a child long dead in a township fire. Reluctant to open old wounds, Yazz refuses to indulge her treacherous friend’s tragic fantasy, but can’t stop herself being increasingly drawn into the tangled web of her old world. As the past begins to bleed into her new life and her allegiances are torn, Yazz realises that all she holds dear is once again at stake.
