About the book: 
On 22 March 2002, Beverley van Schoor was brutally murdered by an assassin hired by her 22-year-old daughter, Sabrina. Is it coincidence that Sabrina is the daughter of Louis van Schoor, the most notorious mass murderer of the apartheid era? And was it by chance that the actions of both father and daughter were motivated by racism? Are there perhaps deeper issues involved? Were Sabrina and Louis van Schoor's murders the result of prejudices prevailing in their country? During the course of her penetrating investigation into why the Van Schoors did what they did, Heidi Holland finds herself asking the question: Where does racism reside now that the language to signpost it has changed?
