Detective Storm van der Merwe is walking her dog on the beach when she makes a gruesome discovery: the body of a young journalist – missing a limb.
For the residents of Grootbaai, corpses are bad for business: thousands
of tourists from all over the world flock to this coastal town to shark-cage
dive with its famous great whites.
Storm is desperate to investigate the matter, but she’s been banished
from the field to a dreary back office. She’s also carless after a tow-truck
driver – an attractive one at that – crashed his truck into her Beetle.
Meanwhile, in Cape Town, Storm’s former colleague Andreas Moerdyk
is having problems of his own while investigating the death of a famous
Springbok rugby player whose car was also hit by a tow truck.
Is Storm’s car accident in some way related to the sports star’s fatal
collision? And is there a link between the journalist’s death and stories of abalone poaching in Grootbaai?
As Storm searches for answers, she realises that everyone’s a suspect and the stakes are deadly.
