Ben Du Toit is an ordinary, decent, harmless man whose sense of justice is outraged by the death at the hands of the police of a man knew. As Ben investigates, he finds that his curiosity becomes labelled as rebellion. The author has won South Africa's CNA award for both Afrikaans and English work.

It's not often that I let a cup of coffee go cold but I managed to do it while reading the end of this book. It had me in its grip and I completely lost track of my surroundings while I had it in my hands. It's set in South Africa and deals with one white man's quest to put right the injustice of the murder of his friend's son. The problem is that his friend is black and the son was murdered by the police and covered up. And this is South Africa in the 1970s. I love reading books like this. They're entertaining and informative at the same time as although the novel is fiction, nothing in it has been invented.
