Publisher's Summary

The follow-up to her much-acclaimed debut, A Beautiful Place to Die, Malla Nunn’s Let the Dead Lie takes listeners back to 1953 South Africa.
When Cooper discovers the body of a young child on the Durban docks, he resists the urge to figure out what happened and leaves it for the local police. But after he is accused of the crime, he has 48 hours to clear his name and find a depraved killer.

Critic Reviews

"With this gripping sequel set in South Africa in 1953, Nunn, who is also a screenwriter, proves that her impressive debut novel, A Beautiful Place to Die, was no fluke....Nunn deftly balances suspense and deduction as she offers a revealing glimpse into South African society under the segregation laws promulgated by the ruling National Party." (Publishers Weekly)

Another winner!

Top notch story with well fleshed out and totally believable characters. Wonderful evocation of the subtropical port city of Durban in the 1950s and the apartheid-dominated milieu of this multi-ethnic city. The narrator, Saul Reichlin, is perfectly suited to the task. His multiple accents and pacing hit the mark. (I would hope we could hear Reichlin's renditions of yet another fine southern African author: Deon Meyer)

Really enjoy these characters

Any additional comments?

Really good narration and a satisfying follow up to the first novel. I eagerly await the third installation to be narrated and made available here.
