The oppressive heat of the day combined with swirls of constant dust against the windshield makes the tour bus driver squirm with frustration behind the wheel He only wants to return safely with his cargo of thirteen shifting women to the end of their destination But a scream erupts at the back of the bus There from the bus window, in plain view, is the body of a dead woman perched, as if displayed, on the top of a wall alongside the road Too late to turn back Too late to unsee the seen.Cape Town s Captain Benny Griessel and his partner, Vaughn Cupido, are called in to the scene of the crime They are known as the Hawks within the SAPS and have plenty of notches on their crime solving belts But this one is going to be a rough one The pathologist states the cause of death as blunt force trauma And this killer knew just how to rid the body of DNA A strong smell of household bleach fills the air as they approach.As the investigation moves on, the stakes are raised higher The body is that of an American woman who worked for many years with Restore recovering lost art This could be quite the international fiasco in the making Time is of the essence The Woman in the Blue Cloak is my introduction to Deon Meyer and his two saavy detectives hitting the streets in South Africa The banter between the two is delightful wi Soos altyd was ek mal oor Deon Meyer se nuutste Bennie Griesel Soos met al sy boeke het ek lekker geglimlag, iets geleer en nie die einde sien kom nie Ek wens net die novella was langer Niet echt een meesterwerk Slordig geschreven over Schiedam en Delft, hoewel ik het deel over Fabritius en de buskruitexplosie wel kon waarderen Beetje Baantjer achtig in mijn idee Dit is het eerste wat ik van Deon Meyer lees, dus hij krijgt nog een kans. Synopsis blurb..The Woman in the Blue Cloak is a brilliant novella which will thrill and entertain fans of Deon Meyer s much loved detective Benny Griessel.Benny Griessel is a cop on a mission he plans to ask Alexa Bernard to marry him That means he needs to buy an engagement ring and that means he needs a loan.So Benny has a lot on his mind when he is called to a top priority murder case A woman s body is discovered, naked and washed in bleach, draped on a wall beside a picturesque road above Cape Town The identity of the victim is a mystery, as is the reason for her killing.Gradually, Benny and his colleague Vaughn Cupido begin to work out the roots of the story, which reach as far away as England and Holland and as far back as the seventeenth century My takeThe Woman in the Blue Cloak was another enjoyable outing in the company Deon Meyer s Cape Town detective Benny Griessel Instead of the usual 400 page plus novel, this one was a 160 page novella, with enough story and teeth to keep me interested.It s an interesting starting point with an unidentified dead body and the local cops soon realising after a day or two, that it s a job for the big boys Griessel and his partner Cupido draw the case In a separate narrative we also have an anonymous man on the run, in fear of his life pursued by four men.Establish the identity, investigate the victim an overseas visitor and art expert with no real connection to South Africa and someone who has recently quit her job in t This is fully a 3.5 star for my read, but I will not round it up because the first 30 to 40 pages were confusing, and IMHO just frustrating as a reader to decipher That it is part of a series is only part of the problem in this type of introduction to the context of the case But if I had read others of this series before, I may have been less distracted by numerous factors of new characters exchanges and the general asides of organizations, colloquialisms etc of South Africa Not having all those duck knowledge points in a row it makes the intro of numerous levels and primes in all this just awkward But I did persist And was fully glad that I did Because the next novella length piece was a full 4 star Especially when you got into the precise minutia of all the criteria that brought our victim to South Africa and the Woman in Blue painting itself Those were top notch.Good plot for the searching of the providence and existence of this painting And the fractional history portions WERE distracting, but there were few of them and so they did give you historical reality without totally breaking the tension of the case I did find the last 5 pages of explanation a bit far fetched but overall, still an intriguing case story outcome And I found the South African law rather leaning toward guilty until proven innocent in methods, but certainly a window Finally I must admit I had trouble understanding this nomenclature for this tiny book than in some pretentious tomes of 500 erudi This is a short novella by Deon Meyer in his marvellous Captain Benny Griessel series set in Cape Town, South Africa Benny is a Hawk, a detective working in the Directorate of Priority Crimes Investigations under Mbali Kaleni, the head of his unit His personal life is currently in a good place, his relationship with Alexa, the well known singer, makes him happy, and he wants to marry her Both have been through challenging times, they are both ex alcoholics and Benny has been married before He is looking to buy an engagement ring, much to the disgust of his long term police partner, the commitment phobic Vaughn Cupido, who feels Benny s marriage plans put pressure on his relationship The ring is going to be expensive, Benny wants Alexa to have a ring she can proudly show in public so he heads for a pawnshop run by long term reputable friend of his However, despite being a long term and reliable customer of his bank, they are reluctant to advance him the loan he needs for the engagement ring.Griessel and Cupido find themselves involved in a mystery that goes back in time to the 17th century to an explosion in Delft, a tow This is a great series which I follow religiously, reading each one as it comes out The Woman in the Blue Cloak is a reasonably long novella and another great story about Captain Benny Griessel.Benny is in a really good place now having managed to give up alcohol He is working in the top crime branch in Cape Town, has a good partner at work and is about to propose to his girl fr
