    In his memoirs, Advocate Vusi Pikoli walks you through his life, from his first initiation in the hills of the Eastern Cape, to his second initiation in the corridors of power in government.

    As the National Director of Public Prosecutions, Vusi Pikoli pursued some ambitious cases against high profile South Africans. Some cases he won, like that against the former National Police Commissioner, Jackie Selebi, although that prosecution ultimately cost Pikoli his job. Others weren't as successful, like the case against President Jacob Zuma.

    Vusi Pikoli faithfully upholds the constitution, to a fault, and has a sharp sense of justice, cultivated in the politically active New Brighton township of Port Elizabeth.

    In his brutally honest account, co-written with award-winning journalist Mandy Wiener, Vusi Pikoli recounts how he fled with his ANC unit, spending 14 years in exile, only to face the difficult and odious task of prosecuting friends and comrades on his return.

    Vusi provides an insider's perspective on cases that have dominated discussion over the past decade from the Arms Deal and the Scorpions to the Brett Kebble murder, the Travelgate scandal, the Special Browse Mole Report and the hoax e-mail saga.Pikoli interrogates the state of the country's criminal justice system, reflects on what has become of his beloved ANC and considers whether the cost of his sacrifice was worth fighting for.
