An inhuman agenda…
A clandestine organization…
And the killing isn’t over yet…

Yvonne Walus’s latest book discusses the uncomfortable issue of atrocities committed by both sides of a battle for freedom.

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 and fighting back with everything they have.

Operation: Genocide is different from other books on the topic in that it presents opposing views: both those of the racist government and those fighting to overthrow it. The book has already attracted negative reviews for portraying the apartheid regime as a monster, and it is on the fast track to become one of those controversial books everybody will read just to be able to form their own personal opinion.

Yvonne is an award-winning author who lived in South Africa during the 1980s and 1990s. Her outsider’s perspective helped her see the country in a unique light. Although the plot details of Operation: Genocide is fictitious, there really did exist a secret government organisation dedicated to discovering scientific ways of killing the country’s enemies.

Buy it in paperback or e-book.
