About the book: 
Joanna Renfield’s life at The Fish Hoek Valley Museum of Natural History gets complicated when DNA testing links the museum’s only claim to fame – a twelve thousand-year-old skeleton nicknamed Fish Hoek Man – with Saartjie Baartman. The media goes wild, the museum has a makeover, and Joanna gets a new Struggle veteran boss. She is here to teach Joanna a lesson – only it’s not the one either expects.
Violence and tragedy lurk in this seaside town, and when Joanna’s world is shaken to its core, it is up to her to find her own brand of muti.
But how much of history is chance? And when does revenge become insanity?
