Thriller Police Procedural
Even after the release of Nelson Mandela and the promise
of free elections, extremist groups terrorized South
Africa, bombing churches, opening fire in bars and
restaurants. Nearly twenty-five years ago, as a young
Captain, Vaughn de Vries finds himself in pursuit of the
suspects of a fatal bombing in his precinct, under the
command of one of the most feared white police officers of
the time: Major Kobus Nel. Out of radio communication and
without clear evidence, the SAPS barge into a township and
set off a chain of events which will resonate for a
quarter of a century.
In Cape Town in 2015, the heiress of an Apartheid-era
industrialist is found murdered, her body posed to suggest
a racial hate crime. But, as Colonel Vaughn De Vries
investigates, possible motives for her death abound: a
highly controversial art exhibition, her sexual
preferences, her relationship - as yet unknown by the
press - with the son of one of the heroes of The Struggle.
And, moving South down through the country, North to
South, five men are murdered, each with a connection to a
point in history De Vries would sooner forget. When the
link is made, De Vries must re-live the traumatic event to
uncover the perpetrator. Old wounds, hidden in history,
are exposed, and a mysterious killer approaches, whom no
one seems able to stop.
