From the award-winning author of A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO DIE comes the next sensational instalment featuring the charismatic detective Emmanuel Cooper.In LET THE DEAD LIE, Emmanuel is a changed man. Forced to resign from his position of Detective Sergeant and re-classified as 'mixed race', he winds up powerless and alone in the tough coastal city of Durban, filling his days with labouring and his nights with surveillance work for his old boss, van Neikerk.Patrolling the freight yards one evening, Emmanuel stumbles upon the body of a young white boy and the detective in him cannot, or will not, walk away. When two more bodies are discovered at Emmanuel's boarding house, he unwittingly becomes the prime suspect in a triple murder case.At van Neikerk's behest, Emmanuel is given a 48-hour reprieve to clear his name and - unofficially - try and solve the murders. And so, temporarily back to being a European Detective Sergeant, he launches headlong into the criminal underworld of Durban, a viper's nest of prostitution, drug running and violence run by a colourful cast of characters including two wannabe Indian gangsters; a mysterious figure who drives a white De Soto convertible; a Zion Gospel preacher; king of the underworld Mr Khan; and the exquisite yet streetwise Lana, who also happens to be Emmanuel's boss's mistress ...As evocative of the city as A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO DIE was of the Jacob's Rest veldt, Malla Nunn's highly anticipated follow-up novel sees Emmanuel Cooper working to a seemingly impossible deadline to escape the hangman's noose. Perfectly plotted, brimming with the complexities of life in Apartheid-era South Africa, and featuring a truly unforgettable cast of characters, LET THE DEAD LIE cements Malla's place as one of the most compelling and readable crime fiction authors in Australia.
