eKhaya Presents Independence by Conrad Schultz

IndependenceBetrayed by love, Rupert Richter wants more than anything to be free of intimacy. His wish is granted when he sells mineral rights on his Karoo farm, making him rich enough to retire from society. His sudden wealth, however, draws unusual attention. When he’s asked to act as bait for a syndicate who defraud people of their fortunes, Rupert refuses to be part of the plot. He closes his bank accounts, sells all his assets and cycles into the African sunset.

Except…Rupert has unexpected appointments with fate. His quest for peace is plagued by high drama and beautiful women. After a road accident, he finds himself fighting for his life and, as if injuries and abductions are not enough, his own heart refuses to follow his solitary path.

Independence is a generous mix of action, adventure and romance, an intriguing exploration of the saying, ‘No man is an island.’
