It is November 1963. The white police state has captured almost all the underground leaders of the struggle against apartheid, including Nelson Mandela, and put them on trial on charges that carry the death penalty. Bob Hepple, a 29-year-old lawyer, is making his hazardous escape from South Africa, in order to avoid being called as a state witness, having acted as Mandela's legal adviser for years.

In this memoir of these dramatic events, Bob Hepple throws fresh light on the character of Mandela and other leaders; and on the controversies surrounding the emergence of the South African Communist Party.
