The third book in the 'Winds of Change' trilogy features Kamau, the Nusu-Nusu (Half/Half) son of Peter and Rafiki. The novel takes us through Kamau's first uncertain steps at a now non-racial primary school in Nairobi. It gives a detailed description of his initiation into adulthood as a Kikuyu tribesman and how he unwittingly exploits that. He follows his half-brother and attends Oxford University and is selected for the England rugby side. There he clashes with one Hannes Roux who is a member of the last South African rugby team to tour the UK prior to the political changes that occurred in South Africa in the 1990's. Roux is a member of the South African security police. Kamau is inevitably drawn into the conflict in South Africa, so the story takes us back to Kenya and into Tanzania, Botswana, Angola and South Africa itself. This is a gripping and fast paced story and deals in detail with the brutality of the South African security forces and the conflict and corruption of the people fighting that ghastly regime. Whilst the story is a novel and the people imaginary, the background is altogether authentic: the author has either lived in or has visited all the countries and places mentioned in the book. "A fast paced book full of adventure and suspense, with the well-researched history constantly reminding you that this is about real issues. It's not just an action book, although there is plenty of that. It is also an education into the various mindsets of the people that were involved on all sides." -Amazon reader
