Better the Devil

When Kate’s activist father is murdered in current day Johannesburg, she returns to a captured state. Everything is about power, patronage and corruption. Kate discovers her father was killed because of what others thought he knew. She approaches friends, family and acquaintances. Some are sympathetic and possess knowledge and influence, others have an agenda. When Kate uncovers that her father knew his killer, and she does too, she’s shoved into action.

As Kate hunts a powerful politician, she realises his skeleton is hidden in their shared past. The closer Kate gets to connecting past and present, the more she realises that to make it out alive, she’ll need to confront her own dark fears.
