The book

Shortlisted Crime Writers' Association International Dagger 2019

This arresting English-language debut validates Karin Brynard’s reputation as ‘The Afrikaans Stieg Larsson.’ An outstanding thriller.
Booklist

Traumatic stress causes Inspector Albertus Beeslaar to trade tough city policing for a backwater posting on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. But his dream of rural peace is soon shattered when a beautiful and eccentric artist and her four-year-old daughter are found murdered on a local farm.

Crime fiction doesn't get any better.
Mike Nicol, author of Payback

Karin Brynard has established herself as one of a handful of great thriller writers in South Africa.
