‘In this captivating thriller, NR Brodie elegantly confronts our biases, prejudices and racism and masterfully depicts the complexities of contemporary South Africa. Thoughtful, entertaining, necessary!’ – Phemelo Motene, broadcaster
Reshma Patel and Ian Jack are back.
The first body was found in the Hartbeespoort Dam. An unidentified woman, presumably drowned, washed up on the banks of an exclusive golf estate. Next came the discovery of a grisly crime scene deep underground in Johannesburg, somehow connected to a second woman found dead in the Jukskei River where it ran through Alexandra.
When the body of a third woman is pulled out of the Vaal River, south of Joburg, Captain Reshma Patel starts to wonder if a serial killer is at work – or if the mutilated corpses have anything to do with the spate of cash-in-transit heists she’s busy investigating.
When a fourth woman goes missing Reshma and her partner, former police officer Ian Jack, have to figure out who is behind the killings – and to stop them, before they can strike again.
