All hell breaks loose when Detective Storm van der Merwe’s mom is pushed under a train at Paddington Station. Storm has to rush to London, even though she’s in the middle of a murder investigation: leading South African fashion designer Beebee Bukelwa Babu was found dead in a luxury Hermanus hotel.
Storm soon realises that her mom was a deliberate target. And she is one too. Meanwhile Storm’s former colleague, the bumbling Andreas Moerdyk, now a PI, is trying very hard to locate a missing and very valuable red diamond. From the murky streets of London to the diamond bourse in Antwerp, from secluded Port Nolloth to Storm’s beloved Hermanus, Irna van Zyl’s third crime novel unfolds at a heart-stopping pace.
