The Telling of Angus Quain is a sharply observed novel of contemporary Johannesburg, featuring Angus Quain's rise from railwayman's son to executive glory and his unusual friendship with Faith Dobermann, a lonely writer/historian who begins to realise that he is not who he seems...

In the corporate world where power equals money, 'King' Quain reigns supreme until he is sabotaged by cancer and his carefully constructed secret lives begin to unravel. Faith's curiosity about him grows into a quest for the truth that takes her from a Jeppe striptease joint along the devious byways of financial corruption to a startling confrontation between the dying man and his rivals in fraud, witnessed by the people he has spent a paradoxical lifetime helping.

This is the compelling story of a brilliant but flawed man and his last, redeeming relationship with an independent younger women: a story of our time, cast with people whose voices are ll too familiar and set against the minefield of modern city living.
