A chilling and thought-provoking tale of child abduction, murder and high level bureaucratic corruption in Cape Town. A really rich sense of time and place is evident in this powerful and moving debut of quite extraordinary fine detail and methodical plotting, introducing unorthodox detective, Colonel Vaughn DeVries.
