Award-winning South African novelist Imraan Coovadia tells the story of a fledgling temporal secret agent named Enver Eleven. Enver teams up with a new handler, Shanumi Six, on a vital mission to preserve humanity's legacy.

In Enver Eleven's city, fair-skinned people are a rarity and have been for centuries. They work as acrobats and jugglers or apply skin-darkening creams to conceal their condition. Johannesburg is the city that survived the end of the world thanks to the shelter provided by the thousands of miles of mining tunnels running beneath it. It's Enver's job at the Agency to make sure that the end of the world doesn't come again. He and his mentor, Shanumi Six, specialize in the hot spots of the twentieth century-Marrakech, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo-where they travel in search of an elusive enemy, guided by the collective intelligence of the Agency's thinking machines which limit time travel to the bare minimum. When Shanumi vanishes on an assignment, Enver finds himself in the middle of a catastrophe which will require him to put his assumptions to the test in an atmosphere of conspiracy and intrigue.
