This detective novel by Michael Williams is very popular with teenagers. A classic whodunnit that is set in Somerset West, but the action moves all over South Africa. It narrates the journey of Inspector Jake Mulligan as he sifts through the evidence related to two criminal cases: one involving an unknown black child whose body is found mutilated and the other a first team, white rugby player from an influential family who is found drowned in the school’s swimming pool.

A thorough resource pack that guides learners through the plot, characters and themes of this novel. It includes questions and suggested answers, plus contextual questions which are excellent for revision. Learners are guided in the art of writing a literature essay, and ideas for further writing and speaking are included.

Very accessible for SACAI students and home learners, but can be used by all senior learners.
