Lieutenant Kramer and Sergeant Zondi have their hands full. On the same day that an adult entertainer is found strangled to death in her dressing room, her pet python wrapped dead around her neck, beloved candy shop owner Lucky Siyayo is shot at his counter in a botched robbery. The detective duo quickly realize neither death is as simple as it appears. With two very different sets of crimes to solve, Kramer and Zondi set off on treks that take them all over town, from the poorer villages to the sleazy dressing rooms of con artists and pimps to the gorgeous step of the South African countryside. Only one thing is for sure—neither will be taking his day off this week!

  • “A revealing picture of the hate and sickness of the apartheid society of South Africa.”

    Washington Post

    " Set in Apartheid South Africa, it is the investigation of the murder of an exotic dancer and a series of robberies. I have to admit, I had trouble with the whole system of Apartheid and it distracted from the story. "
