Description
As a child, Ali Neuman ran away from home to escape the Inkatha, a militant political party at
war with the then-underground African National Congress. He and his mother are the only
members of his family that survived the carnage of those years and the psychological scars
remain.
Today, Neuman is chief of the homicide branch of the Cape Town police, a job in which he must
do battle with South Africa’s two scourges: widespread violence and AIDS. When the mutilated
corpse of a young white woman is found in the city’s botanical gardens, Neuman’s job gets
even more difficult. He is chasing one false lead after another when a second corpse, again that
of a white woman, is found. This time, the body bears signs of a Zulu ritual. A new evil has
insinuated itself into this recently integrated city. And a new drug: traces of an unknown narcotic
have been found in the blood of both victims. The investigation will take Neuman back to his
homeland, where he will discover that the once bloody killing fields have become the ideal noman’s land for unscrupulous multinationals, and that the apparatchiks of apartheid still lurk in
the shadows and the back rooms of a society struggling toward reconciliation.
Soon to be a major motion picture.
Insightful reviews
aBeiLLe: Ce que je connais de l'Afrique se résume aux émissions pub-télé de Vision-Mondiale.
C'est sur que, comme tout le monde, j'ai entendu parler de l'apartheid mais sans jamais
vraiment savoir de quoi il en retournait. La lecture de ce roman de Caryl Férey m'a ouvert les
yeux sur ce pays de misère, de maladie et de violence. Jamais lu un roman policier si bien écrit.
Mais, je vais vous avouer bien franchement, je suis totalement incapable de parler de cette
histoire tellement elle m'a retournée. C'est une véritable claque au visage, une prise de
conscience énorme vis-à-vis ce pays corrompu jusqu'à la moelle où l'horreur et la mort sont le
pain quotidien… Lisez-le!
Melissa Marie: Violent. But good.
Stephanie: Très très bien ! Pas facile à dire mais cela permet de bien comprendre aussi les
guerres de gangs en Afrique du Sud, le rôle limité de la police, le pouvoir du gouvernement, des
riches, des puissants.. La fin de l apartheid et comment certaines personnes ont continué de
leur côté.
Rouxmc: Lu dans le cadre de mon cercle de lecture. L'histoire est relativement haletante,
l'écriture est brute, sans fard . Dommage que l'auteur en profite pour transformer son roman en
"histoire de l'Afrique du sud pour les nuls", ce qui casse le rythme. Quelques envolées
faussement lyriques qui gâchent l. a. lecture...
Marlène: Pas uncomplicated d'expliquer l'effet de Zulu sur moi en quelques mots...À chaud, je
crois que c'est le meilleur polar que j'ai jamais lu. Il va me pousser à faire des infidélités à
James Lee Burke et Dana Stabenow dont les romans policiers à composante essentiellement
culturelle me font sans cesse tomber amoureuse.Je connaissais déjà les grandes lignes de
l'histoire complexe, violente et multiculturelle de l'Afrique du Sud, de sa difficulté à équilibrer son
économie capitaliste et sa tradition tribale. Je suis passée par Cape city et ses environs. Oh,
pas dans les Townships, mais remark ne pas les voir? Il est difficile de ne pas aimer ce pays...
Caryl Férey a réussi, à mon avis, à peindre avec réalisme cette Afrique du Sud déchirée par
mille maux, sans juger, sans prendre de raccourcis, à rendre ses personnages vivants,
exceptionnels... Un polar violent, réaliste, dur, triste et beau. Et au détour d'un chemin, toujours
une lueur d'espoir, aussi mince soit-elle...
