Just a dead man, Paperback / softback Book

Just a dead man Paperback / softback


Laura Marsh, an art teacher and single mother, is horrified when a visiting friend-a Zimbabwean refugee and an artist-finds a corpse in the plantations near her home.

When the friend, Daniel, is arrested for the murder, Laura assumes he has been pegged due to his being a foreigner.

However, a connection between Daniel and the dead man emerges, and the situation becomes even more complicated as some politically well-connected people are lurking in the background of the case.

Resenting the police's unwillingness to look beyond Daniel for a suspect, Laura puts her own life at risk.

The story of a woman trying to move on following her divorce, this crime novel also touches upon the issues of xenophobia and racism in South Africa.
