THIRTEEN HOURS

At 05:36 the woman is running up Lion's Head. She is young, beautiful, American. And terrified. Because she is being hunted, like an animal. 


At 05:37, the call wakes detective inspector Bennie Griessel. There's been a murder. A girl, her throat slit, her body lying next to St. Martini, the Lutheran Church in Long Street. 

At 07:02, the hung-over, alcoholic former singing sensation Alexa Barnard discovers her philandering music mogul husband's body next to her on the floor – and a pistol just inches from her hand. 

By nine o'clock, with two murders to solve and his own longing for the bottle almost unbearable, Griessel realises his mentorship of a new generation of law enforcers is going to be a little more complicated than he anticipated. 

Past noon, the race to save a young tourist from death becomes desperate and chaotic, and just before half past five, they shoot Griessel, right in the heart. 

Fairly normal day, your typical thirteen hours of Cape Town homicide investigation.
