Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature 2011 - Silver Award

“Great sense of suspense and mystery.” 

Sandor is a great athlete, the son of a Hungarian father and a South African mother. He is good at many sports and his water polo team will soon compete in Hungary. But then his father dies on a mountain climbing outing in Cape Town.

Sandor is sure he saw two other men on the mountain path, but everyone else says it was an accident. Sandor starts to delve into his father’s past and when his water polo team leave for Hungary he goes in search of much more than a water polo medal . . .
