About this book

Die respektabele Meneer Hartslief (ePub) | Crime & Thriller

Chris Karsten

Human & Rousseau

When a nightclub owner has the lover of his mistress killed by an eccentric assassin, he has to deal with the family of the murdered man, the Hartslief clan from Brixton. Elie Hartslief is the brain, Antie Engel with her soup kitchen and sixth sense the heart, cousin Boela the butcher the muscle, and Moks with his funky Mohican and weed biscuits the mouth. Elie has become respectable since he became the right-hand of mr Morkel at Morkel Wealth, but the murder of Elie’s brother forces the Hartsliefs to go into laager. Their opponents are the notorious Bogdan Petrescu and his killer for hire, Lood – a man who loves saxophone music and thinking up creative ways to kill people. Think Coen-brothers and Westerns in Brixton and Sandton. Karsten noir at its best.
