Book DescriptionOn a lonely stretch of road, a nameless man commits a murder. The victim is a religious minister on his way to take up a post in a nearby town. The murderer decides to steal the dead man's identity only to discover that one of his first duties is to bury a body that has just been found close to a disused quarry...Although there is evidence linking others to the crime, the head of the local police, the Captain, knows the new minister is guilty. The Captain decides to bide his time--watching, listening, slowly circling his prey. With the town's church ablaze, the Captain is compelled to pursue the murderer across the veld, as his exhausted quarry struggles to make good his escape.
Editorial ReviewIn a bleak morality tale about a fugitive from justice, Galgut again demonstrates his flair for charting the vicissitudes of human despair in modern day South Africa... With increasingly stomach-tightening intensity, Galgut chronicles his troubled protagonist's struggles to evade capture... The suspenseful narrative never strays from the dreary force of its understated character development. As the story builds to a climax, Galgut heightens the book's emotional power with tense one-page chapters until justice - cosmic justice, in this case - comes to call."-"Publisher's Weekly
