About this book:

 

‘Is there no other option?’

‘Unfortunately, not. If you run, we lose control of the situation. The police have nothing other than the details of the roadblock. But if you run, they will suspect more.’

 

All I had to do was to hold out for three days. By that time, Ebrahim would be safely out of the country.

 

As a young underground cadre in 1980s Durban, Moe Shaik endured detention, following orders for the good of the organisation. Little did he know that this stint in the police cells would lead to his lifelong relationship with The Nightingale, a Special Branch policeman turned enemy secret agent whose files were so accurate, Tambo named them The Bible.

    Shaik morphs from being a timid optometrist to leading a critical, high-tech intelligence operation, supplying information to the ANC top brass in exile and in South Africa, laying bare both the state’s and ANC operative’s secrets.

    This thrilling first-person account brings into sharp focus the role of Jacob Zuma, Shaik’s brother Schabir and other players, shedding new light on some of South Africa’s most turbulent years.
