“A murderous cocktail of sex, greed, and post-modern South African racial psychosis. The writing is great, the dialogue funny and the political analysis sharper than a bicycle spoke between the ribs. I am seriously envious.” Rian Malan, author of My Traitor’s Heart
“An author who has the courage to write about the First Indigenous Peoples. The breaking of the silence is significant…” Chief Jean Burgess, Ghonaqua First Indigenous Peoples
Heinrich Böhmke is a writer, investigator and trainer who lives in Durban, South Africa. He grew up in the platteland and went to Wits University where he happened to get detained during the dying days of apartheid. After receiving amnesty for his bravado, he lectured at Vista University in Soweto, organised trade unions, and worked in a law firm and publishing company. He now trains investigative reporters throughout Africa and prosecutes misconduct cases in the public service. He has a small Nguni herd. He has published short stories. This is his first novel.
