9781431405046: Just a Dead Man

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.

Book Description Jacana Media (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Amateur detection is not as straightforward as books and movies suggest - and in South Africa xenophobia and racism complicate the issues even more. Single mother and artist, Laura Marsh, finds this out when she tries to help a friend, Zimbabwean refugee and artist, Daniel Moyo, who is arrested for a murder committed close to Laura s Pietermaritzburg home. Concerned that Daniel has been arrested simply because he is a foreigner and was unlucky enough to find the body, Laura tries to help him. But a connection between Daniel and the dead man emerges, and the deeper Laura digs, the more complicated the situation becomes as she begins to realise that there are some very unpleasant and politically well-connected people lurking in the background of the case. Laura s actions put herself and other people at risk as the police seem unwilling to look beyond Daniel for a suspect. She also finds herself attracted to the Inspector in charge, even though she resents the police for their treatment of her friend. It will take another killing and a life-threatening situation for Laura before a resolution is reached. As well as being a crime novel, the book touches on issues of xenophobia and racism in South Africa. It is also the human story of a woman trying to get on with her post-divorce life and bring up her sons as best she can on her own. Bookseller Inventory # AAO9781431405046
