Steven Biko was the forty-sixth person to die in security police detention in South Africa. But, for the first time, the inquest revealed full and horrifying details of how political detainees are treated. By analysing the court proceedings Hilda Bernstein has reconstructed the events that led to Biko's death, even though what actually happened to him in Room 619 is known only to his interrogators.
