A Dangerous Game
In post-apartheid South Africa, those of the old regime cling to the past, dreaming of regaining supremacy. With the threat of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission ever present, they are prepared to kill to prevent exposure of their crimes. Into this dark world two men appear - the ex-policeman Krige and the martial arts expert Steiner. Both become protagonists in a deadly game when a dossier containing information about abuses committed under apartheid goes missing. Moving from South Africa to London and on to Japan, a series of deadly scenes are played out as men use their ancient skills to find and kill. As Steiner and Krige move through events, morality and loyalty are ignored, and when the two men finally come face to face they must decide who should ultimately be brought to account. Brian Reeve was born and brought up in South Africa. He studied karate and aikido in Japan, achieving black-belt grades in each discipline, and lives in London. Books published by the author are: A Dangerous Game (2005) Dark Intent (2008) Deadly Instinct (2009) The Scorpions' Tail (2010) Zen Mind, No Mind (2011) The Spirit of the Samurai (2012)
