At the height of the Boer War, a doctor at a British concentration camp conducts a series of grim experiments on Boer prisoners. His work ends in chaos, but two children survive. One hundred years later, a disgraced police constable is reassigned to the sleepy South African town of Unie, where she makes a terrifying discovery: the body of a woman, burned beyond recognition. The crime soon leads her into her country's violent past - a past that includes her father, a high - ranking police official under the apartheid regime, and the children left behind in that long ago concentration camp.
