Six days into their search for a man who put a .32-caliber bullet into a South African antique dealer, neither Kramer of the Murder Squad nor his Bantu assistant, Zondi, has a single lead in the case. On the seventh day, Mrs. Digby-Smith opens the trunk of her car and discovers the hideous, tied-up corpse of her younger brother. Two violent crimes—seemingly unconnected. But as Kramer and Zondi pursue their investigation, startling connections turn up in the sordid underworld of Terkkersburg and in the secret, unresolved enmities of World War II.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This well-plotted, well-written murder mystery is exceptional…sometimes grim, sometimes sourly comic, always shocking.” The Atlantic
“So artfully conceived as to engender cheers.... A memorable mystery.” Los Angeles Times
“The pace is fast, the solution ingenious. Above all, however, is the author’s extraordinary naturalistic style. He is that rarity—a sensitive writer who can carry his point without forcing.” The New York Times Book Review, praise for the author

Author Bio: James McClure

James McClure (1939–2006) was a noted journalist and author. He was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but lived in England for well over the last half his life. He is best remembered as the author of the Kramer and Zondi police procedural series, which contained a not-so-subtle message to those overseas about the inadequacies of a society split so radically along racial lines.
