About this book:

A gripping new addition to the Cape Town crime genre from a talented debut author. Voinjama Johnson, 28, is an ambitious investigative journalist at the Cape Town magazine Urban. Her life is messy, and to top it all, Vee’s been seeing things: a teenage girl in a red hat, an unsettling hallucination that goes hand-in-hand with debilitating episodes which Vee is loath to call “panic attacks”. When she spots a photograph of the girl in her visions at a local hospital, she launches an investigation, under the pretext of writing an article about missing children in Cape Town. She’s soon delving into the secrets of the fractured Fourie and Paulsen families, with the help of her assistant, Chloë Bishop. Why can’t anyone answer their questions? What happened to Jacqui Paulsen, who left home two years ago and hasn’t been seen since?
