DEADLY MOTHER CITY – Captain Pieter Strauss

I am happy to introduce my Rugby playing Captain Pieter Strauss to my English reading audience.

Clear the stage, raise the curtain


The heat is oppressive in Cape Town and the drinking water is running out. A series of brutal murders shake the Cape of Good Hope. The tension boils over when the body of a young tourist is found in the middle of the idyllic national park.
Captain Pieter Strauss of the “De Valke” special unit must catch the murderer before there can be another victim. Are these gruesome crimes connected to the ancient superstition of the Rain Queen, who demands victims in times of drought? Or is there something else behind it?
Pieter and his old friend Nick Aquilina quickly get caught up in a vortex that pulls them deep into the merciless world of the townships and entangles them in the machinations of unscrupulous, large corporations. A fierce battle breaks out over the urgent need for drinking water, and all the while the murderer hunts for his next victim.
