Don’t Kill the Dead
by Vusi Gumbi
In Don’t Kill the Dead, Vusi Gumbi weaves an intriguing crime story, in which the suspense builds until the very last pages.
Our main character, Detective Allison Cowes, and her partner are in search of a serial killer who has molested, brutalized, and murdered children. Allison and her brother, now an up-and-coming political figure, survived a very dire childhood, which causes Allison to become even more determined to solve these crimes.
When an associate of her brother Bennett is murdered while at his townhouse, the investigation takes a complete turn. Could these crimes somehow be connected? Allison struggles with the idea that her brother might be involved or even responsible for at least one, if not all of the deaths. Alternatively, is he the target of a sinister plot devised by his political opponent?
Gumbi has taken the “whodunit” narrative to the pinnacle with clues that are very subtle at first, and then reach a crescendo like a bolt from the blue, leaving the reader stunned by the outcome.
