The History Of Blood

Author:

Paul Mendelson

Synopsis:

When the South African Police Service receives a panicked call for help from the wayward daughter of a former Apartheid-era politician, they soon discover not only her body, but within it, a message that will take Colonel Vaughn de Vries and Don February of the Special Crimes Unit on a journey through their country - and its past. As organised crime grips South Africa, new players arrive in Cape Town, determined to exploit the poor and hopeless. While other government agencies snap impotently at the small fish, de Vries, linked by a personal connection, resolves to follow this trail to its source and take it down from the top. Soon decades-old webs of corruption and influence are exposed; and as the boundaries of morality blur, de Vries's decisions begin to impact on his friends, colleagues and family.

Andrew Nicoll

Synopsis:

The brutal murder of wealthy spinster Miss Jean Milne a hundred years ago shocked the country to its core. Why was she tied up, tortured and brutally murdered? Who could have committed such a heinous crime? To all appearances, Miss Jean Milne was the model of respectability, living quietly by herself in her seaside mansion. But behind the facade, she led a secret life, her frequent trips to London masking an altogether different story. For a century, the case went unsolved; now, using newly released evidence, Andrew Nicoll has brought it back from the dead to reveal what really happened. It's a shocking tale of class division, money, sex, lies, betrayal and murder. And, at last, the curious death of Miss Jean Milne may finally have found a solution.
