Abigail Bukula was fifteen when her parents were killed in a massacre of antiapartheid activists by white security forces. Because a soldier spoke in her defense, she was spared. Now she’s a lawyer with the new government, and while she has tried to put the tragedy behind her, she has never forgotten that soldier. So when Leon Lourens walks into her office almost twenty years later with a story of how someone is killing off members of the team who murdered her parents, she turns to Yudel Gordon, an eccentric white prison psychologist, for help. To save Leon’s life they must untangle the web of politics, identity, and history before the anniversary of the raid—only days away.

The October Killings brings to life the new South Africa, and also Abigail Bukula—the most determined sleuth in international crime fiction.

Praise for The October Killings

Praise for The October Killings

“A brilliant novel of memory, reconciliation, and revenge. Ebersohn was always one of South Africa’s best, and this new book—the beginning of, I hope, a series—shows why. . . . Definitely one of the best mysteries of the year.”
The Globe and Mail

“His horrors, rooted so closely in history, have a nightmare quality that’s hard to shake.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
