In Like Clockwork a beautiful young woman is found murdered on Cape Town's Sea Point promenade, and police profiler Dr Clare hart is drawn into the web of a brutal serial killer. As more bodies are discovered, Clare is forced to revisit memories of the horrific rape of her twin sister and the gang ties that bind Cape Town's crime rings. In Blood Rose Clare investigates a series of brutal murders in Walvis Bay. Each death is a gruesome echo of the previous one, the victims young homeless boys, discarded in the seedy underworld of Namibia's fishing port, a thousand miles north of Cape Town. It's a hostile place, awash with old grudges and new money, but Tamar Damases, the astute local cop who calls in Clare Hart, refuses to let the boys' deaths go unpunished. In Daddy's Girl the desperate search for a missing child, whose chances of survival diminish with each hour, unravels a web of deception and danger that puts all their lives at terrible risk. In Gallow's Hill a dog scavenging in an illegal building site digs up a bone. A human bone. She drags it back to where her mistress lies dead in an abandoned shed, but there are hundreds more . . . skeletons which have lain undisturbed for centuries beneath Gallows Hill, where Cape Town's notorious gibbets once stood. In Water Music an emaciated child is found on an icy Cape mountainside, and Clare Hart is baffled that no one has reported her missing. Where does she come from, who does she belong to? In a race against time, Clare battles to unravel the two cases and locate the missing Rosa. As winter tightens its grip, she is confronted by chilling secrets in a context where criminals act with increasing impunity and the police can no longer be trusted. Amidst the frenzy of the investigation, Clare must also bear a secret of her own.
