The Fall (2020)

Forthcoming July 2020 with Kwela

Hector, #FeesMustFall protest leader, believes it’s time for the students to think a little bigger than toyi-toying. This creates problems for NonĂ©, South Africa’s President, who wants no trouble from pesky students in the week she’s launching an extraordinary zoo.

So, when Thuli reveals that she can see seven days into the future and Hector’s life is at risk, the idea seems only semi-crazy to Helen, the journalist she tells. But as Helen starts to investigate the sinister forces that lurk on campus, she realises that Thuli knows only part of the danger. The people in power might be more menacing than anyone could have foreseen.

One thing is certain: if Thuli is right, there are only seven days to change the future.

Set in an alternative Cape Town and told by a diverse cast of characters, The Fall is an enthralling, edge-of-your seat read.
