"Love, Crime and Johannesburg is the story of Jimmy 'Long Legs' Mangane and the trouble he gets into in the New South Africa. Jimmy, a people's poet involved in the struggle, is accused of robbing a bank. He passionately asserts his innocence, claiming to work for the 'secret secret service'." "Lewis, his old friend and comrade from the struggle, now owns a bank. How did this happen? The man of the struggle is now a man of accounts. A man of the nineties. Part of the cellphone generation. Added to the mix is an old-style gangster, two girlfriends, a Jewish father and a very unusual Chief of Police."--BOOK JACKET
