About the book: 
Die vrede en stilte in die klein Noord-Kaapse dorpie Griekwastad is kort ná skemer op Goeie Vrydag, 6 April 2012, versteur toe ’n jong tienerseun in sy pa se Isuzu-bakkie die dorp binnejaag en met skreeuende remme voor die byna verlate polisiestasie stilhou. Dit was net voor 19:00 toe die bebloede Don Steenkamp uit die voertuig spring en die aanklagkantoor binnestorm met die nuus dat sy ouers en suster op die familieplaas Naauwhoek wreedaardig doodgeskiet is. Alhoewel daar aanvanklik gedink is dat die moorde net nóg ’n plaasaanval was, is Don maande later weens die moorde gearresteer. Dit het ’n proses aan die gang gesit wat Suid-Afrika sou meesleur en die mense van Griekwastad onderling sou verdeel.
 
Hierdie boeiende verhaal van wat werklik op daardie noodlottige dag op die plaas Naauwhoek gebeur het, word vertel deur die verslaggewer wat die saak van die eerste dag af gevolg het. Dit is gebaseer op onderhoude met al die betrokkenes, insluitende die ondersoekbeamptes, die forensiese en ballistiese deskundiges asook familie en vriende van die oorledenes, en eindig met die uitspraak en vonnisoplegging…
