The Tall Assassin tells of a reign of terror marked by several political murders in one man's zealous quest to combat communism. For many, General Hendrik van den Bergh was the most feared man in the old South Africa. He was the head of BOSS, the Bureau of State Security, and The Tall Assassin tells of his dealings. The book draws on facts, reconstructing likely scenarios where details were not obtainable. Van den Bergh, who was responsible for the arrest of Nelson Mandela, built a formidable intelligence network linking into MI5, the CIA, Mossad, and French and German intelligence agencies. According to this book, he may have been involved in the assassination of HF Verwoerd, the death of Nic Diederichs, Steve Biko's murder, as well as the murder of Anton Lubowski and Professor Johan Heyns. Two of the most infamous murders in which this book implicates the general are those of Dr Robert Smit and his wife in 1977. This murder mystery has never been solved, but here a compelling explanation is offered for the meaning of the mysterious words 'RAU TEM' painted on the Smits' kitchen wall. From a meeting of minds in an internment camp at Koffiefontein, to the paranoid sixties, the tumultuous seventies and the Information Scandal that rocked the National Party establishment, The Tall Assassin paints a terrifying picture of ideology driving a regime's agents into a moral free fall.
