They're psychopaths, violent offenders, drug addicts, sexual deviants and social misfits. And these are the good guys. In the notorious military camp known as The Vault, they are considered unfit to wear the South African Defence Force uniform. As part of a brutal rehabilitation programme, they become the experimental toys of a rogue psychiatrist. After a tragic accident and a clerical error, conscript Lloyd Norton finds himself thrust into this macabre world. He will never be the same again. The novel, based on the real apartheid-era camp Greefswald, not only rips open an all but forgotten chapter in a chilling history, but also tells a gripping rites-of-passage story.
