Time Bomb - A Policeman's True Story (ePub) | Autobiography
The true story of an ordinary policeman who served in the South African Police Force at the height of apartheid. With graphic scenes of violence and sex, it exposes the realities of being in the police force in the seventies and eighties when brutality was commonplace and men didn’t cry.
Johan Marais was also a witness to and participant in several incidences of police corruption and brutality. He developed a serious drinking problem and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, but it took a suicide attempt before he would admit that he had a problem. He consulted a doctor who recommended that he should write down his incredible life story. The result is Time Bomb.
Not for the faint-hearted, this is story that needs to be told.
