Weeping Waters by Karin Brynard
Andrew Brown (right) interviewed her, so we had two amazing authors entertaining us in the Book Lounge.
Andrew praised Karin for not dwelling on the death of the child – that would have been too much. The woman’s death is rather gruesome. Karin says violence, like sex, needs to be held in check.
Andrew, a sergeant in the Police’s reserve force, also praised her for the sensitive way she dealt with the police as well as the careful way in which she waylaid the right-wing claims that all farm attacks are racially motivated. Karin pointed out that she used to be a political journalist.
All in all it was yet another very good night for crime writing in South Africa!
