When lives collide, and time runs out, will there be a final change for redemption?
Aden Cassalotti, damaged by childhood trauma, tragedies and disappointments, is financially and emotionally insolvent and finds solace in a crack pipe.
Volatile Noel Schuurman, Aden’s lifelong friend and business partner, feels neglected living out of town running their marijuana and magic mushroom operation. The brooding recluse has killed before and, with escalating pressures, not even his mother and sister are safe on their isolated plot.
Aden takes a job with a ruthless criminal enterprise in an urban slum where dope and flesh are pedalled. He encounters Mandipa Ndlovu, who is being held with other sex slaves waiting to be sent to work.
Kgotso Shelile and his cousin, Senatla, search for Mandipa, Kgotso’s abducted girlfriend. In the underbelly of Johannesburg, they encounter Aden. Having grown up together, the men share an immediate bond. When fate throws the three together in a Hillbrow strip club, the potential for peril is fraught with danger.
Key’s debut psychological thriller is sure to get your pulse racing.
Silent Helene Van den Bergh has wandered the city since her release from a psychiatric hospital fifteen years earlier. Horrified when her friend is murdered, she knows the bullet was meant for her – but why?
On Devil’s Peak, on spring equinox, Helene waits for the moon to rise, unaware that two killers stalk her. The Dark Man, and Etienne Craig, The Diabolical Creation, a depraved lunatic whose lust for violence has reached its zenith. But something infinitely more evil hunts on the charred mountainside. Its depravity knows no bounds and its form cannot be predicted. Evil men set on slaughter may themselves become its prey.
Flash Peterson, Honey Esack and Petra Montgomery, The Sisters of Light, unite in a desperate scramble against the clock. Can they conquer the darkness in time to save their friend, Helene?
In this gripping psychological thriller, Sarah Key, author of Tangled Weeds, weaves the supernatural with crime to stunning effect.
Time is running out for the hunchback enchantress, Siango. The village on the floodplain is in conflict and the failing chief needs her dark craft. The crazed poacher, Ikului, hunts elephants for their wisdom sticks. He offloads his cache in Lusaka where he procures ingredients for Siango’s muti. But he has more than ivory to trade.
A vicious attack on a game ranger brings life-long friends back to Chistlehurst Manor, the hotbed of secrets and crushing betrayals.
Flash Peterson worries about her brother, Derrick. Caught up in a trans-national smuggling ring, Derrick crosses southern Africa on a soul-altering journey. His cousin, Honey Esack, is called upon to use her psychic ability in an attempt to locate him.
From Cape Town, to the Victoria Falls, Lusaka and Western Zambia, disparate characters’ fates are perilously entwined. In a storm, on a bridge spanning the mighty Zambezi, can the Sisters of Light once again conquer darkness? Can forgiveness be won in a pulse-racing faceoff with evil?
Sarah Key enthrals again in this sequel to The Dandelion Clock, Book II in the Sisters of Light saga, about the mysteries and magic of Africa.
