A call comes in: a respectable white couple has been assaulted and left for dead in their bedroom. The couple’s teenage daughter identifies the attacker as Aaron Shabalala— the youngest son of Zulu Detective Constable Samuel Shabalala—Cooper’s best friend and a man to whom he owes his life.

    The first in her Detective Emmanuel Cooper series, A Beautiful Place to like a brilliant combination of Raymond Chandler and Die marks the debut of a talented writer who reads Graham Greene. It is a tale of murder, passion, corruption, and the corrosive double standard that defined an apartheid nation.

    In Let the Dead Lie, Emmanuel Cooper is a changed man. Forced to resign from his position of Detective Sergeant and re-classified as 'mixed race', he winds up powerless and alone in the tough coastal city of Durban, filling his days with labouring and his nights with surveillance work for his old boss, van Neikerk. Patrolling the freight yards one evening, Emmanuel stumbles upon the body of a young white boy, and the detective in him cannot, or will not, walk away.
