Anni and Shrien Dewani's life together was the stuff of romance novels: Love at first sight, a whirlwind courtship, a wedding proposal in Paris after a flight on Shrien's private plane. Young, wealthy, and attractive, the Dewanis were the kind of couple that seemed immune to misfortune - until they arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on their honeymoon. Barely a day later, a brutal carjacking left Anni dead and Shrien wandering alone through one of South Africa's most dangerous neighborhoods.
At first, Anni Dewani's death seemed to be a random tragedy, a case of naïve tourists out of their depth in an unfamiliar land. But the police investigating the killing soon began to suspect that something more nefarious had happened - and that not all of the incident's victims were as innocent as they first appeared.
In The Honeymoon Murder, veteran foreign correspondent Joshua Hammer uncovers a story of tragic misfortune and intrigue, in which cultural and political pressures complicate private lives and nothing is quite what it seems to be.
