A Khoikhoi assassin, a blackmailed premier, a suicidal academic and a girl fleeing violence centuries deep ...
Four lives in crisis. On the same day. In the same hotel.
Sarie's memories, the doctor tells her, are from 200 years ago. Confused and alone, all she wants is to return to her family. Jacqui plans to blackmail a senior politician. But Khaya stands in her way. He needs the politician to steer a deal his way.
Bitter about the fate of his people, Apollis feels he must shed blood to restore to them their land and dignity. Harry, unable to overcome his past, steps out of his comfort zone on the last day of his life.
When they meet, the place that birthed them all, burns.
“Böhmke serves up 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
“Bohmke takes you on an exciting journey that weaves through the layers that knit the South African landscape together. A strong and unique voice that uses the past to explore our present.”
Shubnum Khan, author of Onion Tears
“An Author who has the courage to write about the First Indigenous Peoples. The breaking of the silence is significant…”
“Sacred cows are stomped on all over”
“This book combines a vivid portrayal of people and places with the
forcefulness of an ironic political parable. The storyline rappels
over a jungle of different turfs that perforates political boundaries.”
“Böhmke has produced an ensemble of robust, interesting characters whose dialogue is gritty.
He is a talented storyteller and Sarie is an authentic and thought provoking story..”
