A brutal murder. A masochistic killer. An ancient secret. A beautiful policewoman. Lots of short sentences. When C.C. Langa - Nobel Prize winner, physicist, symbologist, love-god - is called to investigate a mysterious killing in the National Gallery in Cape Town, he finds himself the primary target in a dark plot that will change the course of history forever. Or at least change the course of history until the next time the course of history is changed. Perhaps in the sequel. It's a gripping race against time and purple prose as Langa and his beautiful partner follow a trail of clues through South Africa, their every move shadowed by a relentless assassin with a family history of sunburn and a shadowy mastermind known only as the Teacher. From the cutting edge of the art world and Pierneef landscapes to the eternal splendour and romance of the streets of Louis Trichardt, the glamour never stops as the actions reaches boiling point. Are there secrets worth killing for? Can Langa discover the shattering truth? How many roads must a man walk down before he can say he's a man? Why do blurbs always ask rhetorical questions?
