Weeping Waters by Karin Brynard

Albertus Beeslaar is a policeman newly arrived on the North Cape of South Africa in search of a quieter life but of course he finds nothing of the sort as murder is rife on its remote farmsteads. The author does a fine job of evoking her unforgiving setting and although there are some longueurs and too many lessons on South African politics, I enjoyed this far more than many more polished thrillers.
