Blurb: They find her body in the veld near Cape Town, South Africa. A teenager. She’s not the first. Recently widowed Detective Jan Magson has to look mothers and fathers in the eye. Has to answer their questions. He can’t. He can’t even answer his estranged son’s questions about how his wife died. Alone with his pistol at night, a good man faces his inner darkness. After obtaining degrees in Psychology and Criminology, Martin Steyn studied serial killers and profiling. Dark Traces is his first novel in English.
Yes, it’s a terribly short blurb and suitably dire but it’s set in South Africa and I am all for that! What country would you like to read a crime novel from?
