Chief Constable Piet Deventer, recently married and now a father, is thrown into turmoil by twin tragedies - a young woman is murdered at a music festival, only hours after Piet's own baby daughter is abducted.
Forced to put aside his personal woes and focus on the murder, Piet finds himself in a seedy world of drugs and rock'n'roll. He meets Harriet, the dead woman's sister, who has a shocking confession - might the two crimes be connected after all.
Racing against the clock, Piet must untangle the web that connects the dead woman, the festival and his daughter, before it's too late.
Corruption runs deep in the second fast-paced mystery featuring Piet Deventer, from master of 1970s crime, J.R.L. Anderson.
