Besprechung

"Excellent...[a] harrowing and surprising story. The ultimate power of the book comes from an authoritative meditation on the traps that open up for someone who answers to himself before society" Scotsman

Kurztext / Annotation

A man investigating the death of a friend discovers the dangers of curiosity...

Langtext

Ben du Toit is an ordinary, decent, harmless man, unremarkable in every way - until his sense of justice is outraged by the death of a man he has known. His friend died at the hands of the police. In the beginning it appears a straightforward matter, an unfortunate error that can be explained and put right. But as Ben investigates further he finds that his curiosity becomes labelled rebellion - and for a rebel there is no way back.
