This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This novel reflects the brutality and corruption of South African mining companies starting in the 1850s lasting till today.

The fictional story is based around a copper mine in Namaqualand where a new magistrate is trying to uphold the law against the rules of the Company doing all the business there.

While the almost starving copper miners are digging the tunnels of the mine abominable atrocities are come to surface.

Easy read echoing long gone labour exploitation to our days. ( )
