Publisher's Summary

During a weekend spree in Cape Town, a young, rich Afrikaner fatally injures a teenage street girl with his Range Rover but is too drunk to know he has hit her. His companions - who do know - leave the girl to die.

The driver's mother, a self-made mining magnate named Margot Le Roux, intends to keep her son in ignorance of his crime. Why should his life be ruined for a nameless girl who was already terminally ill? No one will care, and the law is cheap. But by chance, the case falls to the relentless Warrant Officer Turner of Cape Town Homicide.

When Turner travels to the remote mining town that Margot owns - including the local police and private security force - he finds her determined to protect her son at any cost. As the battle of wills escalates and the moral contradictions multiply, Turner won't be bought and won't be bullied, and when they try to bury him, he rediscovers, during a desperate odyssey to the very brink of death, a long-forgotten truth about himself....

By the time Willocks' tale is finished, 14 men have died, and he shows once again that he is the laureate of the violent thriller.

Real raw characters

This novel is not foe the faint of heart. It is set in South Africa with a great portion of the novel set in a desert. The characters are gritty and realistic and you’re taken into their minds and soul. Couldn’t stop listening. Narration was superb.

Utterly unique mystery thriller

Memo from Turner features a cleverly written mystery plot that keeps you guessing, populated with intriguing, complex characters. But what really sets this book apart is the relentless series of brilliantly conceived and executed action sequences. Willocks, who is a doctor, uses his medical knowledge to stunning effect in crafting what has to be some of the wildest, most brutal scenes ever written. Be warned: this book is ultra hard to put down so it might be best to target it gm for a weekend when you have little to do.

Any book by Tim Willocks is well worth reading

I discovered this author many years ago and was immediately caught up with his descriptions, setting the stage so to speak, so you can almost feel the heat of the sun or the smell of sweat, in the scene. This novel was a treat.

Really good book; Reminds me of Shantaram.

A story based in South-Africa and is very unique and exciting. It has 4.8 stars for a reason.
