Publisher's Summary

As delightfully wry and witty as his best-selling debut, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, this is a tale of how one young woman's attempt to change her future ends up changing everything.
On 14th June, 2007, the King of Sweden disappears. In 1994 South Africa dismantles six missiles, developed during its brief nuclear weapons programme. In 1961 Nombeko Mayeki is born in a Soweto shack. Seemingly destined for a life nasty, brutish, and short, her path takes an entirely unpredictable turn. Because really this story is all about the seventh South African missile - the one that was never supposed to have existed. The one that Nombeko knows far too much about.
So now she's on the run and running into twins who are officially one person, a Vietnam vet, and a potato-loving Baroness. But the fate of the King of Sweden, and indeed the world, will remain on her shoulders alone.
