Dear Durban…

Charis never intended to wind up in the ‘City.

She is a Central girl, born and bred, with no wish to be a part of the criminal underworld. But she quickly found out that the ‘City is not so easy to break away from once you are there and that if you are not very careful, you find your own fingers getting as dirty as those you despise.

When Charis discovers one of her best friends has taken over a criminal syndicate and the man she has fallen in love with has been keeping dangerous secrets from her, things begin to go badly wrong.

Charis learns the hard way that in the ‘City who you know can be – quite literally – a matter of life and death.
