Description


In the world of espionage, truth is the first victim and nothing is as it seems. Here, for the first time, South Africa's most notorious apartheid spy Olivia Forsyth lays bare the story of her remarkable life. Olivia Forsyth was a romantic young woman in search of adventure when she joined the Security Police with visions of international derring-do. But Craig Williamson, her unit head, had other ideas and Olivia was trained to spy on students before being dispatched to Rhodes University, a supposed 'hotbed' of anti-apartheid radicalism. It wasn't long before Olivia had infiltrated various student organisations, feeding vital information back to her handler. She came to hold prominent positions on campus and, as reward, was promoted to Lieutenant. Having reached the end of her studies, Olivia set her sights on a much more ambitious - and dangerous - target: the ANC in exile. But what should have been her greatest triumph as a spy turned into disaster when the ANC threw her into Quatro, the notorious internment camp in Angola. This is a riveting story set in the final years of apartheid.
