David Roth walks in on a gruesome accident at the Umvoti sugar mill. Then an auditor who insists that he has evidence of foul play at the mill ends up dead. Soon after, David is attacked on the yacht that he is fixing up for his uncle in Durban harbour and he becomes involved in a struggle to expose the truth without becoming the latest in a series of “accidents”. Somehow it is all linked to the deaths of several mill workers and their family members some months ago. Evidence and witnesses seems to have a way of disappearing at the Umvoti mill. And then there are the mill workers, who will lose their livelihood if the mill had to close down.
