This book has a history in South Africa. I admit it is not for everyone some parts of the history is hard to read. There is a lot of corruption going on here. Besides that it is a little dark with respect to some of the gang related areas of Cape Town. I like dark so yes I did enjoy it. When the dog comes up with the bone it starts everything off. The description of the human bone and all was good enough to start the plot on a slow upward march.
The character of Dr Clare Hart who is an investigative profiler is called to start the investigation. Her lover Riedwaan is the Captain in charge of the gang unit. These two are both working the same crime. I will admit the name Reidwaan was not going over well with me. It was one I never heard and found it hard to keep seeing. There is language and terms that I was not familiar with either so it made parts a little difficult.
It is an enjoyable read especially if you are a mystery lover especially one that is wrapped in turmoil of the political nature.
