Synopsis

'If I stood you in front of a man, pressed a gun into your palm and told you to squeeze the trigger, would you do it?'

'No, sir, no way!'

'What if I then told you we'd gone back in time and his name was Adolf Hitler? Would you do it then?'



Zimbabwe, 1980s.

The fighting has stopped, independence has been won and Robert Mugabe has come to power offering the end of the Old Way and promising hope for black Africans.

For Robert Jacklin, it's all new: new continent, new country, new school. And very quickly he learns that for some of his white classmates, the sound of guns is still loud, and their battles rage on.

Boys like Ivan.

Clever, cunning Ivan.

He wants things back to how they were, and he's taking his fight to the very top.

Jason Wallace was born in Cheltenham in 1969 but moved to London after his parents split up. Aged 12 his life was turned upside down when his mother remarried and the family emigrated to Zimbabwe. It was this experience in a tough boarding school during the aftermath of the war for independence that forms the foundation of his incredible novel. And he did actually meet Robert Mugabe when he visited his school. Jason is currently a web designer, living in South West London.
