Product Description

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.

Reviews/Praise

“A priceless work of art is at the heart of Meyer’s latest thriller . . . This novella-length tale is a worth addition to the Benny Griessel series.”―Booklist

“Enjoyable . . . Strong characterizations.”―Publishers Weekly

“Is it O.K. to call a murder mystery ‘lovely’? That’s the word that comes to mind for The Woman in the Blue Cloak, a short but quite beautifully told story about two women by the South African author Deon Meyer . . . Quietly moving.”―Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
