Book Synopsis

DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA, 1953  Forced to resign from his position of Detective Sergeant and re-classified as 'mixed race' after an incident involving a young black woman, Emmanuel Cooper winds up powerless and alone in the tough coastal city of Durban, mixing labouring with surveillance work for his old boss, Major van Nickerk.  Patrolling the freight yards one night, he stumbles upon the body of a young boy and the detective in him cannot, or will not, walk away.  When two more bodies - this time an older English woman and her maid - are discovered at his boarding house, he unwittingly becomes the prime suspect in a triple murder case.
