Abstract:

Someone in Cape Town has chosen a conspicuous murder weapon--a century-old German handgun, with ancient bullets to match, bullets that tear through flesh and bone. The killer has a preferred method: one shot to the head and one shot to the chest, leaving a rapidly rising number of dead. For Captain Mat Joubert, this might be the last chance to prove that his life's slow spiral will not pull him under and sink him at last.
