Fiction - Novels
Tannie Maria might be the Karoo's favourite agony aunt, but when it comes to matters of her own heart, she doesn't have all the answers.
Why is she having trouble telling her beau - the dashing Detective Henk Kannemeyer with the chestnut moustache - that she loves him? There are other, more pressing problems too. A tall, dark stranger zoomed in on her Ducati motorbike: she is Zabanguni Kani, a journalist renowned for her political exposés, who, after receiving threats, must move in with Tannie Maria for safety. Who could tell that a trip to the country's northern borders was on the cards?
The journey will plunge Maria and her friends into pools of danger, amid water maidens, murders, and Harley Davidsons. Ladismith's famous crime fighter is back - with a tin of buttermilk rusks in hand - to restore eace from the Klein Karoo to the great Limpopo River.
