This fictional story focuses on two young boys who grow up in police homes with both their fathers serving the South African Police Service. Antonie Marais is Otto en Trudie’s only child but he is exposed to the constant trauma caused by the absence of his father due to his father’s working commitments. This results in Antonie developing an intense grudge against the SAPS and he blames them for his loneliness. Paul Visser is the youngest son of Lourens and Tersia and one of a twin. His admiration for his father and the SAPS is so big that he constantly spends time with his father at work but not only that, he vows to himself to become a policeman, just like his father.
It is during an ordinary school rugby match where these two boys’ paths cross and where an intense rivalry develops as a result of an incident on the rugby field. Antonie swears revenge should his paths ever cross with Paul’s, unaware what fate life held in store for him.
This fictional story was written by a young policewoman who has a big heart for police members. She had the unfortunate loss of a family member as a result of cancer and did a lot of research about leukaemia with the writing of this book. The events occurring at police stations and what happens during the execution of a police officer’s duties are real and a true reflection – guaranteed to keep the reader captured from beginning to the end.
