Description

Day of Reckoning is a political thriller set in South Africa in 1979 to 1981, when Apartheid was at its worst. The novel's narrative is in the form of a flashback, as recalled by the country's great leader himself. The story opens in Stellenbosch, a picturesque university town forty kilometres from Cape Town. Two students are playing golf and discussing politics on the links. One is a staunch right winger and the other is his political opposite, a liberal. Fate thrusts them into leading and unpredictable roles. The liberal party is in total disarray and most of its leaders are in prison. For the forces of freedom to succeed, the release of their inspirational leader must be assured. He has already been incarcerated for sixteen years, and with his health failing, there's no time to waste. How can the liberals break their leader out of a penitentiary that has never before been penetrated? No one has ever escaped and lived to tell the tale. The charismatic leader's followers form a task force and then approach the Soviet Union for help, but the Soviets have their own agenda. Can this small group succeed where all other have failed? A retired architect, first-time author Leon Diamond grew up in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and now lives in Johannesburg. He is a member of the South African Institute of Architects and a past member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. He wrote this book as a tribute to a great South African. His next book will be a collection of short stories. Publisher's website: http: //sbprabooks.com/LeonDiamond
