Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the so-called Creedish Death Cult, is dictating his life story into the flight recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid-and-collagen-packed media messiah.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

His stories don’t follow a timeline... or purpose for that matter. Add to that, the biased view of racism, everyone is a racist” (being exaggerating facetious) and only South Africans struggle know poverty... it sounds like an attempt to make a very bad situation seem even worse that it already is... “Like ok, ok you’re the slum dog millionaire”

The Pact combines global politics, combat, economics, conspiracy theories, and Special Forces history into one nail-biting fiction work; think Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy meets Red Dawn....
