TRADE THE DAY Guest Author: Yvonne Walus

By - July 30, 2013

On August 23, starting at midnight, I will be hosting a special event called Trade the Day: Spotlight on Team Alaina. During this twenty-four hour blog-a-thon, proceeds from sales of my new book, The Trade, made on my publisher's website at will go to benefit Team Alaina for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Yesterday, I started featuring participating authors, and for the next 18 weekdays leading up to the big event, I will continue to feature two of the day's scheduled special guests, some which will be guest blogging, some who will be hosting giveaways of autographed books and other goodies, and some who will be doing both!  Get to know this fantastic group of people right here, and come back on August 23 to join us for a day of 24 hours, 23 guest authors, and 1 goal...a cure.

Our next guest author is:



Yvonne Walus writes crime fiction set in South Africa because she believes it’s a misunderstood country. South Africa means a lot of things to a lot of people: lions in long yellow grass, diamond mines, apartheid, Nelson Mandela, rugby. All of those images are right, yet none of them - according to Yvonne - are representative of the country or its people. None of them describe what it’s like to live in South Africa, both in the 1980s and today.

Yvonne would like her readers to smell the red dust of the continent and to fall in love with Africa the way she did when she first set foot there as a teenager. Through her books, Yvonne shows that South African people, despite the recent history of discrimination, are no different to any other people. Not worse, not better. Just people.


An inhuman agenda… 
In 1982, Annette Pretorius lives a life of privilege afforded to those of European descent in South Africa, but when her husband is murdered, she discovers a shattering secret: he’d been commissioned by the whites-only South African government to develop a lethal virus aimed at controlling the growth of the black population--already oppressed under the cruel system of apartheid. 

A clandestine organization… 
The murder came with a warning to Annette from a secretive organization: keep our secrets or you too will die. Captain Trevor Watson, Annette’s former 

boyfriend, is appointed to lead the investigation. Watson’s loyalty is tested as the evidence stacks against his high school sweetheart. 

And the killing isn’t over yet… 
When the investigation points in a terrifying direction, Annette and Watson face a wrenching choice: protect those they love or sacrifice all to save innocents from racial extermination.
