Product description

From the Back Cover

Kommandant van Heerden is overjoyed at his new posting to the once-proud colonial city of Piemburg in South Africa. The residents, though, are less sure about their new police chief. When a doyenne of English society reveals she has killed her black cook – who was also her lover – van Heerden does all within his misguided power to stop the news leaking out, and to thwart a fashionable trend to taking black lovers. But was it really wise to accuse and arrest the Bishop of Barotseland for this crime passionelle? Or to asked the condemned Bishop to bequeath van Heerden his true English heart? The Boer Kommandant's search to be a real Englishman knows no bounds of morality in this wickedly funny satire.
