When a beautiful young woman is found murdered on the Sea Point
promenade, journalist and part-time police profiler Dr. Clare Hart is
drawn into the web of a brutal serial killer. As more bodies are
discovered, Clare is forced to revisit the brutal rape of her twin
sister and the gang ties that bind Cape Town's dark crime rings.
This book was inspired by the author's research into South Africa's sex industry, interviewing survivors, perpetrators and detectives. Margie Orford's second Clare Hart thriller, Blood Rose, is set in Walvis Bay and the Namib desert.
