In Cape Town in 1972, Aaron meets Angela in a bar.

Aaron has no way of knowing that she has sought him out because he is a White man about to move into District Six - a formerly Non-White and Coloured area, re In Cape Town in 1972, Aaron meets Angela in a bar. Their immediate intellectual unity and verbal foreplay lead them to a cheap hotel room and into a relationship without sexual, political or philosophical boundaries. Aaron has no way of knowing that she has sought him out because he is a White man about to move into District Six - a formerly Non-White and Coloured area, reclassified White. He's also not to know that she's a political assassin and probably the most dangerous woman that he's ever likely to meet. What he does know is that there is something bubbling under the surface in the South Africa around him and there's an energy in the stolen house he shares with the marijuana smoke, political discourse and public expressions of the flesh. It is unseen and unheard but always threatening to build to a crescendo and blow his world apart. The Tyranny of Trust is a deeply resonant take of deception and intrigue, inspired by real events.

    Blurred lines between race, conquest, repression, and sexual identity manifest themselves in the violent Apartheid era of 1970's District 6 in Capetown, South Africa. Twists, turns, and surprises abound through the powerful feminine instigators that operate a highly intellectual, sexual, and violent urban warfare. As the reader, we feel the urge to cheer for the liberation of the eclectic bohemian, musical, and multi-cultural landscape emanating from the Genesis Continent that South African Nati Blurred lines between race, conquest, repression, and sexual identity manifest themselves in the violent Apartheid era of 1970's District 6 in Capetown, South Africa. Twists, turns, and surprises abound through the powerful feminine instigators that operate a highly intellectual, sexual, and violent urban warfare. As the reader, we feel the urge to cheer for the liberation of the eclectic bohemian, musical, and multi-cultural landscape emanating from the Genesis Continent that South African Native Neil Gevisser inspires us to fall in love with. A fantastic read that leaves us questioning ourselves with a vivid reality of honesty that makes us wonder exactly where the story stops and reality begins and which events are only "inspired" by truth because once the book is finished it all really did happen. The book lives in the 'grey' which reflects a holistic complex world. A must read.

    Wow, what an amazing book - totally unlike anything I've ever read before. Political thriller, sordid exposé, and philosophic meditation, rolled into one, and all wrapped up in a Black-White struggle where everything is anything but simply black and white. We are treated to a menagerie of complex, intriguing, and internally conflicted characters, and are left to draw our own conclusions on the precarious rights and wrongs amid the chaos. An extraordinary piece of literature.

    This book is brilliantly written. Gevisser's sense of humour and original writing style makes this book both amusing, insightful and unique. The incredible story set in the bohemian back streets of District Six, Cape Town is fast paced and yet is infused with insightful prose and philosophy which makes you sit back and reflect on yourself. The fact that much of what he talks about is still relevant today makes for an even more interesting read. I highly recommend this book!
