Found after being buried for a hundred years is a deed box containing dramatic first hand Zulu and settler interviews given to an investigative journalist. He witnesses a murder and flees to a hideaway where he links their statements into a story that splutters and sparks like a fuse leading to an explosive climax. Believing his executioners are close, he buries it. Historic facts add credibility.
