Summary
"Inspector Albertus Markus Beeslaar is a traumatized cop who has abandoned tough city policing and a broken relationship in Johannesburg for a backwater post on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. But this dream of rural peace is soon shattered by the repeated attacks of a brutally efficient crime syndicate. Along with two rookie cops Ghaap and Pyl, Beeslaar is plunged into the intrigue and racial tensions of the community and finds that violence knows no geographical or ethnic boundaries"--Page 4 of cover
