Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. PROLOGUE MAY 22-THE TULI RIVER VALLEY, ZIMBABWE The sky demons came in the dark hours before dawn. Joshua Mksoi saw them first only as a faint flicker on the horizon and turned away without knowing what he had seen. Joshua, the youngest of his father's four living sons, had never had any schooling and couldn't waste time or energy in studying the black, star-studded sky or the waning moon. He had to drive his family's cattle up the dry river valley to their grazing lands before sunrise. It was a task that had consumed every day of nearly half his short life. The small boy trudged wearily along the trail, herding the long-horned cattle with the sound of his voice and the tip of his hardwood staff. Cowbells clanked and jangled in the quiet night air. Everything was as it had always been. Then the demons came-flashing close overhead with a howling roar that drove everything but fear from his mind. Joshua stood frozen in terror, sure that these monsters of darkness and air had come for his soul. He wailed aloud as his thin, tattered shirt billowed up, caught in their clutching, sand-choked breath. And then they were gone-fading swiftly to mere shadows before vanishing entirely. For long seconds, the boy stood rooted in shock, waiting helplessly as his pounding heart slowed and his arms and legs stopped trembling. Then he started running, chasing franti­cally after the maddened cattle as they stampeded away into the darkness. For as much as Joshua understood them, the Puma heli­copters, turbine engines howling, might as well have been demons. Filled with malign intent and of fearsome appear­ance, they certainly fitted the definition. And they were totally uncaring of a small boy's fears. It was the smallest of the many tragedies that would strike Zimbabwe that day. STRIKE FORCE, COMMAND HELICOPTER The lead Puma helicopter shook violently, caught in a sudden upward surge of air, and then nosed over-following the winding, northward trace of the Tuli River valley. Four other camouflaged helicopters followed in staggered trail forma­tion. The group flew so low they were almost skimming the ground, at two hundred kilometers per hour. Aboard the lead Puma, Rolf Bekker bounced against the shoulder straps holding him in his seat. He leaned forward and craned his head to see past the machine gunner crouching in the open door. A black, uneven landscape filled his limited view. After a moment, he looked away from the door and sat back. He'd seen it too often in the past few years to find it very interesting. Bekker was a tall, lean man with a rugged face. His tanned features were covered with streaked black and green cam­ouflage paint. The African sun had bleached his short­cropped, blond hair almost white. His camouflage uniform carried only the three stars of a captain on twin shoulder boards and a unit patch on his right sleeve. The patch bore the emblem of South Africa's 44th Parachute Brigade. He pulled the Velcro cover off his watch and checked the time. Just minutes left to the LZ. Bekker looked up and met the wide-open, frightened eyes of the informer, Nkume. The black was a tall, thin Xhosa tribesman sitting as far away from the open door as the seating arrangements would allow. He looked out of place among the fourteen heavily armed paratroopers who were the helicopter's other passen­gers. He was unarmed, dressed in worn civilian ~lothes. The soldiers wore helmets, camouflage gear, and carned compact and deadly assault rifles. They looked very sure of them­selves. Nkume did not. The South African officer scowled. He didn't know the black man's full name and he didn't care. Though he realized that the success of this mission depended in large part on this cowardly kaffir, he didn't have to like it. Bekker's right hand closed around the trigger guard of his rifle and he nodded to himself. If Nkume endangered the mission or Bekker's men in any way, the black would soon be begging for death ..
