Mendelson, Paul, 1965-

The Serpentine Road / Paul Mendelson. - London : Constable, 2015. - 343 p. ; 20 cm.

Twenty-one years ago, as a young captain, Vaughn de Vries found himself in pursuit of the suspects of a fatal bombing, under the command of one of the most feared white police officers of the time: Major Kobus Nel. Out of radio communication and without clear evidence, the South Afrian Police Service barged into a township and set off a chain of events which would resonate for nearly a quarter of a century.

Cape Town, 2015: de Vries is called in to investigate the murder of the heiress of an Apartheid-era industrialist - a woman, who unknown to the press, had a relationship with the son of one of the heroes of The Struggle. The six men are murdered, each with a connection to a point in history De Vries would sooner forget. When the link is made, De Vries must relive the traumatic event to uncover the perpetrator. Old wounds, hidden in history, are exposed, and a myserious killer approaches, whom no one seems able to stop.
