But when she’s posted back to South Africa following the suspicious death of an ex-colleague, she faces the biggest medical mystery she’s ever seen. The resettled San community of Platfontein is exhibiting a higher-than-average HIV infection rate, and their people are dying. The cases Lily takes over are baffling and despite her best efforts the medicine doesn’t seem to be helping. To save this unique community, Lily and a policeman from the Kalahari, Piet Kleinman, join forces to trace the origins of the epidemic and uncover the truth. Their search drags them into the dangerous world of a corrupt industry driven by profit while the authorities meant to protect their community turn a blind eye. In a race against time, Lily and Piet will put not only their careers but their lives on the line. Join TM Clark as she discusses her latest novel, <em>Cry of the Firebird</em>. Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for TM Clark to sign.&nbsp; To reserve your place, <a href="https://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/whats-on-and-events/event/meet-claire-ashman-140164463" target="_blank">visit Eventbrite</a> or phone the library.
