Erin’s first instinct is to go to the police, but the South African Police Force is paralyzed by corruption and overwhelmed by hundreds of open cases. Cases just like Erin’s.
Erin delves into the dark underbelly of Johannesburg to find the man who took her daughter. When she realizes that the police are protecting him, she must decide between disobeying a violent police force and giving up on her daughter.
Wow. Just, wow. I can't really say that I LIKED this book, but more that it was an excellent book! I was riveted, and feeling the pain of the characters, being a mother myself. The detail of the harvesting for the muti was disturbing and haunting, and completely captivating. This is why I can't exactly say that I LIKED the book haha. Hard to explain! But this was a powerful book, in my opinion, and I am very glad to have had the opportunity to have read it!
