When a corpse is found amidst the sand dunes north of Cape Town, it doesn't take long for the police to identify the body as Ernst Richter—the tech whiz behind MyAlibi, an Internet service that provides unfaithful partners with cover stories to hide their affairs. Was it a jilted spouse, or perhaps an aggrieved client? With a spotlight shining on the investigation, detective Benny Griessel's boss wants him on the case—his fifth, after Cobra—and in this 2016 CWA International Dagger Award nominee, Griessel will have to make sure his suspicions are beyond the shadow of a doubt, or he could be the next victim.
