Little Ice Cream Boy
Maria Goosen will always remember her son as her little ice cream boy, standing on the beach at Margate with a cone in his hand. Everyone else knows Gideon Goosen as a monster; a gangster, assassin and murderer who made a pact with the devil and deserves to live out his days in Pretoria Central Prison. How is it possible that the son of a decorated, God-fearing security policeman could fall so low? His mother blames it on his friends from the other side of the railway line in Randfontein, others on a leggy prostitute from Nigel who became an obsession. Gideon believes everything changed on an autumn morning when he cold-bloodedly murdered an anti-apartheid activist.
