(From the publisher):
Mat Joubert has lost everything: his wife, his hope and his future. But when a bizarre series of murders throws the residents of Cape Town into panic, cracking the case rapidly becomes his last chance for personal redemption.
With only the murder weapon, a nineteenth-century German handgun, as a clue, the odds are stacked against him.
Mat soon learns that he is not the only one trying to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. And, as the killer works down some unseen hit list, it becomes clear that while Mat is struggling to start anew, the only thing the killer wants is revenge...
