Cape Town launch: The Reckoning by Yrsa Sigurdardóttir (March 6)
Join acclaimed Icelandic thriller writer Yrsa Sigurdardóttir in conversation with Michael Stanley (the duo behind 'Detective Kubu') at the Cape Town launch of her latest novel!
A chilling note predicting the deaths of six people is found in a school's time capsule, ten years after it was buried. But surely, if a thirteen-year-old wrote it, it can't be a real threat...
Detective Huldar suspects he's been given the investigation simply to keep him away from real police work. He turns to psychologist Freyja to help understand the child who hid the message. Soon, however, they find themselves at the heart of another shocking case.
For the discovery of the letter coincides with a string of macabre events: body parts found in a garden, followed by the murder of the man who owned the house. His initials are BT, one of the names on the note.
Huldar and Freyja must race to identify the writer, the victims and the murderer, before the rest of the targets are killed...
Date: Wednesday, 6 March (6 PM for 6:30 PM)
