A single phone call shattered Carol Thompson’s life. Her daughter Tracey’s car had been found abandoned on the side of the road. Days later her body was found… Carol’s family has been destroyed – not only by the murder, which remains unsolved, but also by the callous and incompetent way in which the police went about their investigation. Tracey, who had always only wanted to help other people, was betrayed in life and in death. This heartbreaking true story of a life extinguished too soon, and of a mother’s quest for justice, is also a powerful indictment of policing in South Africa.
