In All My Sad Dreaming
by John Caulfield
If you love intelligent thrillers, you will not be disappointed by this amazing story set in Cape Town, South Africa — In All My Sad Dreaming by John Caulfield.
Captain Blake plunges into a twilight world of inexplicable accidents, mail order brides, music, madness and murder. In the shadow of Table Mountain, the city streets appear familiar yet dreamlike. His mission is to trace his attackers, but Blake soon finds himself side-tracked by the cold blooded execution of a prominent Cape Town attorney. As the investigation races towards its climax, Blake’s sense of dissociation intensifies, and it becomes clear that he is struggling, not only to catch a killer, but also to reclaim his sanity, as well as his very life.
What sets this book apart is the complex plot with unexpected twists set against the backdrop of the new South Africa, with all its mystery, beauty and unfathomable contradictions.
