Summary
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.

"Television journalist Rebecca Thorne is working on a documentary project exposing a crooked ex-cop property developer. Much to her chagrin she is removed from the project to work on another documentary about the notorious 1981 South African rugby team's tour of New Zealand. At the same time, Rebecca breaks up with boyfriend Rolly. Strange things start to happen: is someone stalking her, breaking into her house and moving her things? Or is she just being paranoid? As she learns more about the 81 tour, Rebecca becomes fascinated by the Lambs, two anonymous protesters who mocked the police and entertained the crowds, and by the disappearance of one of them on the night of the Wellington test. As sinister events in Rebecca's life increase, she gets closer and closer to finding out what happened to the Black Lamb"--Publisher's information
