Detective Emmanuel Cooper ; 1.

Summary

Malla Nunn delivers a stunning and darkly romantic debut novel featuring the charismatic Detective Sergeant Emmanuel Cooper. It is 1952, and new apartheid laws have recently come into effect, dividing South Africa into black and white. Tensions simmer as the fault line between the oppressed and the oppressors cuts deeper, but it's not until an Afrikaner police officer is found dead that emotions more dangerous than anyone thought possible boil to the surface .
