The Chanteuse From Cape Town

A Sol Nemo Mystery


How far would you go to take revenge?

When Sol Nemo, a rich but mentally-troubled private investigator, learns of the kidnap of the wife of the man who’s been like a father to him, he responds instinctively to the call for help. But, unfortunately, Sol’s bargained without the betrayal of his trust and the life-threatening consequences that follow.

So begins this intriguing tale of murder and revenge set against the backdrop of South Africa’s breathtaking landscapes and the vibrant cities of Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Step by step, as the story unfolds, Sol has to confront a web of deceit and corruption with which he must wrestle; just as he must wrestle with the crippling anxiety that periodically overwhelms him. And, as if this wasn’t enough, Sol must also decide his response to his on-off lover’s recent overtures. Is her sudden rekindled interest no more than the lure of his vast inheritance or does she really wish to cement a long-term future together?

From all this, Sol emerges as a protagonist with many of the doubts and weaknesses that afflict us all but, in the final reckoning, he too must answer the question: How far will I go to take revenge?

I've been writing for a while. In fact, it's been a long while as I completed my first novel when I was about 20 years of age. I don't remember much about it now except that it concerned a plot to extort money from the Government. Some of my research for it though, on the subject of explosives as I recall, evidently caused a chilly breeze to blow through establishment circles which resulted, one sunny afternoon, in police officers paying me a visit...


Well, if you would like to find out how the story ended, please have a look at my website. Not only will you discover how I extricated myself from what could have been a tricky situation, but you will also gain an insight into the rest of my background and more importantly into the world of Sol Nemo, a rich but mentally troubled private investigator, based in the vibrant city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
