With this gripping sequel set in South Africa in 1953, Nunn, who is also a screenwriter, proves that her impressive debut novel, A Beautiful Place to Die, was no fluke. A former police detective sergeant, Emmanuel Cooper is now working undercover on the docks of Durban Harbor to document police corruption for his old boss, Major van Niekerk. When Emmanuel comes across the body of a white slum kid, who ran errands in the port area, with his throat slit, he observes that the notebook the 11-year-old boy used to record orders is missing. The authorities regard Emmanuel as the prime suspect in this crime as well as in the subsequent murders of a landlady and her black maid, whose throats are also cut. Van Niekerk manages to get Emmanuel out of jail, but with a strict two-day deadline to find the real killer. Nunn deftly balances suspense and deduction as she offers a revealing glimpse into South African society under the segregation laws promulgated by the ruling National Party.

Mooched!! Thanks heaps darkpunkangel, and thanks for the postcard too. :-)

I've seen lots of great reviews re this book. Unfortunately I still need to find the first in the series before diving into this one.

Journal Entry 5 by wingcrimson-tidewing at Balingup, Western Australia Australia on Tuesday, March 15, 2016
Second book of the series featuring Emmanuel Cooper, this is again an excellent read. Nunn has a gift of being able to brilliantly depict time and place. Cooper is in different circumstances from the first novel, both personally and geographically, with this one having an urban setting around the port area of Durban rather than a rural setting. Cooper's character develops and we also meet up with other old friends. It's well written, interesting, and feels 'real'.


Now will soon be off travelling to keeta1 as a wishlist tag.

Thank you crimson-tide - the book arrived today :)
Just having a quick flick through, I recognized a lot of the names of streets and towns, so this should be an interesting read. We lived in a small town on the coast between Durban and Stanger.

A good read and good follow-on from A Beautiful Place to Die.
