Full Text: 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.
