Life has taken a sudden turn for the worse for TV journalist Rebecca Thorne. Her romantic holiday ended with a proposal...then a break up. Now her ex, Rolly, seems to be stalking her. Her boss has taken her off the investigation of a shady property developer, just when things were heating up, and he's charged her with producing a doco on the 1981 Springbok tour. How is she supposed to find a fresh angle on a story that has been hashed to death? Then there are the creepy bumps in night, the mysterious photos that keep arriving on her phone and the shadowy presence of Rolly. But as she learns more about the 81 tour Rebecca becomes fascinated by two anonymous protesters called Lambs and the disappearance of one of them. The sinister events in Rebecca's life increase as she gets closer and closer to finding out what happened to the Black Lamb.
